Talk and Tour

Saturday 23rd September
Monday 25th September
Wednesday 27th September
Friday 29th September


Hoswick, South Mainland

Join Niela in Hoswick for an informal chat and tour. Niela’s knitwear design business Nielanell was founded in 2008, it has since expanded into a world wide market. In her own design practice, Niela endeavours to translate into knit that which she feels is the magic of living and working in Shetland today.

Hear some of the stories behind Niela’s contemporary designs and chat about the challenges and benefits of designing and making, in a small rural Shetland community. Niela will discuss the design and manufacturing processes, and give you a peek at the machinations behind the scenes, including visits to her textile, glass and print studios which provide areas where design imagery is generated.

About Hoswick

One of the few villages in Shetland with a ‘nucleus’, in Hoswick you will find interesting gardens, artists’ studios and other nooks and crannies. Birdwatchers are constantly found sneaking round bushes searching for that elusive rare specimen. Close by you will find an interesting beach – great for beachcombing.
