feast your eyes on this crocheted platter of fish

brighton-based textile artist and knitwear designer kate jenkins was eight when she learned to knit and crochetshe spent many happy hours growing up totally engrossed in creating ‘things’ with yarn. years on and jenkins still feels the same, putting her skills to use making crocheted food art that often looks better than the real thing.

whilst her creations are always accurate, jenkins makes sure to always add wit to her creations. beyond texture and proportion, animated faces and brilliantly thought-out set ups capture the light-hearted nature of her craft. her french fries are suitably french, and the battered fish wears a bandage.

while my journey has been varied and exciting, one thing never changes‘, jenkins explains. ‘whatever I create, whether it’s a carton of french fries, a tin of sardines or a box of frogs I always include lots of warmth and a dash of wit. above all, I want my work to make people smile.’
