Mutonia, an artitsts and traveller community in Northern Italy, is under serious threat of eviction. Woolly Wormhead, a prominent knitting designer, is a member of the community and she is running a fundraiser to help pay for the legal bills which the community has been landed with - thousands of Euros are needed in order to help them keep their home.
"As a resident of this unique and special place, I have a vested interested in keeping this community together - we don’t want to lose our home," says Woolly. "This collection is my contribution to our joint fundraising efforts - for each eBook sold, I will donate £7 to our fund"
She has released an eBook featuring 10 of her most popular designs. All of the models featured are either residents of, or friends to, Mutonia. The photographs were taken within the ‘Time Machine’; a group installation created in the early 90s that is a key feature on site.
