Denise Handwerker's Profile
I have been making things since I was nine years old when I first learned to knit. I love combining techniques to create something beautiful and unique. I am inspired by the recycled or re-purposed materials that I use, the colors are so vibrant, the texture so nubby and of course re-purposed.
I am committed to using re-purposed materials for my creations. In addition to wool sweaters, I have started to use suiting from old wool suits and sometimes leather from old clothing.
My goal is to produce beautiful, functional objects.
Resale shops are my favorite place to shop and where I find fabulous sweaters for felting. I machine or hand sew, felt in a washing machine, and crochet.
I am grateful that this path has chosen me and I hope you find something delightful…
