About

Gary Hayton is a textile artist and sound designer.
This site is predominantly about his work as a textile artist.

Gary has supplied knitted textile designs to the fashion industry, his costumes have appeared on stage for theatre productions, and he used to produce a collection each year when he sold his knitted garments directly.

These days he is interested in making felted sculptures, which he refers to as “soft sculptures”, and felted hats, contemporary and historical.

Nearly all of Gary’s work uses the Fibonacci number sequence in one way or another, but mostly for shaping the form of his work.

Another interest of Gary’s is to combine knitting with sound design, “noisy knitting”…
