Today the show in Bath School of Art comes down and textiles moves on next week, to
NEW DESIGNERS in Islington.
This week we plan the show.

We will be exhibiting the work of some of our most creative talent either in person or digitally.

Fingers crossed we make it into the Trend Bible tour again.

We are on-trend after all.

Previously selected work by Joelle Preddy.

We hope to see you there.Come and say hello!

To begin the beginning

photo-43Before we start to even attempt a textile structure in the form of knit,weave,braid or macrame etc… we look for, and interpret,three dimensional influences.

The lead into this project was research into manmade constructions.

Once recorded the ideas took shape and over one or two days,unique forms emerged as individual students produced their own 3D referencing.
Surfaces,textures,structure,materials and form went head to head in the race for unique starting points.

This week the technical workshops begin with this information as the beginning of the beginning!
