Sue Mcdermott

Sue Mcdermott

Medium: Textile
Location: West Vancouver, BC
Member Since: 1974


Sue McDermott began learning the rudiments of several crafts while studying Occupational Therapy in Great Britain in the 1950s, including classes in weaving, pottery and woodwork.


Recently, the advent of grandchildren has rekindled her interest in knitting. She uses either hand-spun or machine-spun natural animal fibres with an emphasis on novel colour combinations created by hand-dyeing. Her knitwear is colourful but never loses sight of one of the basic principles of good design: functionality. They are made to never shrink and the colours to never run when worn or washed.
