Kate Phillips - Assistant Manager, Textiles and Soft Construction

There aren’t many materials Kate doesn’t like, but more time has lent itself to the exploration of textiles. With a BFA in Sculpture from the Rhode Island School of Design, there has been a real push to find ways of making things. Through that exploration and problem solving, Kate has landed, with full force, on knitting. It started as a kid, with a couple of wooden needles on a family road trip. It wasn’t a smooth start, but with years of patience it has offered her priceless opportunities to work with many interesting artists and designers.
