My name is Anushka and I started The Crimson Stitchery as a YouTube channel in February 2019. I was in the middle of my PhD, knitting at the back of lecture theatres and and looking for people to share my love of making things with!
I originally trained as a costume designer & maker before my post-graduate research in fashion & cultural history. My mixed research and studio-based backgrounds give me an approach to design which is equally practical and philosophical.
As a designer, I believe that ethics and aesthetics should go hand-in-hand. I like to ponder the big questions about life and what it means to be human, whilst drinking tea and making something with my hands. I share all this and more in my YouTube videos, with questions, creativity, and my outrageous love of colour.
