Soft Thoughts is flexible and twisting just like the myriad of textiles we love and wear and see in our every day lives. We chat about textiles, with people we know, people we don't know, and everyone in between. We discuss within and outside the academic sphere of textiles, and aim to be open, engaging and a wee bit silly in an attempt at bridging the gap between those that practise textiles and those that wear them - the every day and the artists!

    01: Freddie Robins: Softness is Power

    In the first ever Soft Thoughts, we welcome Freddie Robins! Robins uses juxtapositions between how knitting is and could be seen, unravelling preconceptions of femininity, motherhood, death and the body, and twists the soft into evil and back again, imbuing a sense of power in using metaphor in knitting. As Catherine Dormer, artist, has said, "Robins offers a challenge to the notion of knitting as a passive, benign activity."Soft Thoughts is a textiles podcast that is flexible, twisting and soft, just like the myriad of textiles we love and wear and see in our every day lives.We want to chat about textiles, with people we know, people we don't know, and everyone in between.
