The Close Knit podcast showcases artists, designers, and makers from all over the world who work with fibre in its many forms. Knitters, spinners, sewers, textile artists - all will be celebrated on the Close Knit podcast.
This week on the Close Knit Podcast, I spoke to Lauren Hunter, who is a student of costume making at NIDA (the national institute of dramatic arts). We chat about how and why she got into costume making, her love of medieval footwear, and her interest in fibre in its many forms (think leather work). Lauren loves the feeling that making something from start to finish gives her - so much so that she went back to school to study costume making.

People/ Things we mentioned in the podcast:
- The Corseted Beauty - maker of historical fashions
- Zoe Felice - costumer, designer of burlesque pieces, and former NIDA student
