Bryony Phipps Wardle

Biography

Specialising in knitwear and knitted textiles I aim to invite conversation around my work and challenge current fashion systems.

Bryony is a designer, maker and researcher working in knit.
Graduating from the Royal College of Art in 2019, she has developed a methodology centred around the traceability of materials and responsible design and making, which is at the core of studiopw. Championing the use of British wool as a local, renewable resource, all the yarns Bryony uses are carefully sourced to ensure a transparent practice. She believes it is important for us to re-connect ourselves with the materiality and origins of what we wear.

Traditional knit techniques are re-interpreted using a combination of hand and machine processes to create knitwear pieces and tactile accessories for a unisex market. Led by an immersive research process that connects a variety of themes and ideas, Bryony's practice has a strong material narrative. She is interested in telling lesser told stories through her work, drawing inspiration from amongst other things; sheep markings, rural landscapes and subculture uniforms.
