Teresa Dair is a knitwear, dress designer and Textile Artist but not as one would expect! She incorporates non-traditional materials and techniques that challenge the perception of what is a wearable piece. She never works from a normal pattern, instead choosing to be motivated by the anticipation of what might result from mixing materials and building them with knitting or sewing process. It is the simplicity that is the very essence of her work. She uses design fundamentals such as line, balance and shape to create interesting and unique pieces of wearable art. Teresa teaches at fibre forums and exhibits around Australia. She has also published two books, “I Knitted My Way” and “A Spring Summer Collection
