Keywords:

Robins is renowned for her inventive and provocative use of knitting, finding it to be a powerful medium for self-expression and communication because of the cultural preconceptions that continue to surround it.

She works to commission and exhibits nationally and internationally, most recently History in the Making: stories of materials and makers, 2000 BC – Now, Compton Verney, Warwickshire, If Not Now, When? Generations of Women in Sculpture in Britain, 1960 – 2022, The Hepworth Wakefield & Saatchi Gallery, London and I Put a Spell on You – Magic and Mysticism, Art Exchange, University of Essex. 

In 2003 she held a solo exhibition, Cosy, at The Minories, Colchester.

She has been the recipient of numerous grants including Arts Council England/National Lottery, British Council, Crafts Council and AHRC (Arts & Humanities Research Council).

Her work is held in private and public collections including the Government Art Collection, Victoria and Albert Museum, Crafts Council and Museum and KODE – kunstmuseene i Bergen, Norway.
