These Times and How we Maintained Focus

Each weekend we will follow the progress of two of our graduating students

Working under these conditions they deserve all the glittering prizes!

Let me introduce you to Jess Game – Knitter extraordinaire

Here, in Jess’s words, is the narrative to her work

For years I had the above image of me sat on my gorgeous plastic throne hung on my bedroom wall. At the time, I was extremely enthusiastic about gardening and took great pride in my veggie patch.

However, I saw (and still see) these two funny looking pumpkins as my biggest gardening achievement. Peas please, is a knitwear collection inspired by my childhood love of vegetables.

This collection is led by colour and pattern and is intended for children’s fashion.

It is full of character and quirky details to give something usually considered to be boring (especially to children) a more fun and exciting view.

It has been created on Dubieds and domestic knitting machines to create knits of varying weights and structures.

The collection features a range of fun jacquards and intarsias along with some heavily textural pieces.

Handknitted and crochet embellishments have also been applied to create individual and unique details and trims.
