Textile Design for Fashion and Interiors Alumni Amelia Maguire.

Since finishing my degree last year, I have moved home to the seaside, to Falmouth in Cornwall.

I am in the process of buying a loom and setting up a little studio.

I work in a  beautiful interior shop so I can continue to follow my passion for Interior Design and styling.

Recently I presented my work to John Lewis, it has fuelled my passion to get my work out to a wider audience.

I’ve launched my website as a portfolio to showcase my woven surfaces as a useful tool when approaching future ventures.

I have tried to keep the style extremely simple in order to showcase my work to its full potential. My images tend to be detailed close ups showing of the surface texture with some images showing my styling – excellent quality images are a definite must! I hope you enjoy having a little look!

We look forward to seeing your work on sale Amelia and more work being produced when your loom is up and running!

Please make your site and selling site.We’re so keen to buy!

Final Countdown

So exciting to see the latest 1st year work.

The quality of work benefitted from, and reflects the influence of, all the disciplines studied over the past year.
Drawing,colour,texture,materials,scale,yarn,concepts,manipulations etc..

It’s now time to choose the most appropriate subject area in which to specialise.

Exciting times -so many choices and options.

Working with Industry

We continue to work with industry to broaden the student experience.
Yesterday was no exception.
Work presented showed the depth and breadth of the wonderful textiles produced by the 3rd year TEXTILE DESIGN FOR FASHION AND INTERIORS STUDENTS
Here is a taste of the work that will be on show here, at Bath School of Art and Design, at beginning of June and again at New Designers at the end of June

Preparing for Construction

Among the many areas we explore in depth :colour,drawing,pattern,digital,design,embroidery,print,etc, etc…one of the most exciting is construction.

It is during this time that the student designers who enjoy ‘making’ the most come into their own.
Exploring and experimenting with methods of manipulations and 3D construction,they reinvent through use of contemporary materials, techniques and colour new ways in which to express their ideas for fashion and interiors.

I called in at the Pitt Rivers Museum in Oxford yesterday to reacquaint myself with the collections and to see how we could make use of their expertise.

Fingers crossed.
