Kate Jenkins is a knitting genius and one of the most original and innovative UK artists. Famous for her unique crocheted food, Kate takes a nostalgic look at everyday items, re-invented in wool and yarn with ironic, comic touches. She has exhibited in London, Brighton and the United States and her work is collected worldwide. Her latest project is her third solo show in London entitled “Kate’s Crochet Market” which opened on 1st September 2011 at the Rebecca Hossack Gallery. It will be showing lots of items that would usually be found in a supermarket including a tin of cambell’s tomato soup, baked beans, packets of sausages to name just a few items on Kate’s shopping list.
