Meet the Author

While her undergraduate work focused on painting, Cosette Bate's enthusiasm for handmade crafts and for the cultural heritage of knitting led her to do her current thesis at Regent College in knitting rather than painting. She has been selling her work on her etsy shop and has been participating in the juried Vancouver, B.C. show, A Sustainable Gift, and other local fairs.
