Spotlight on Jess Game

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.

Establishing Studios: These Times

And HOW WE MAINTAINED FOCUS.

Yesterday we started our record of how Textile Design for Fashion and Interiors students were coping with the unique situation we find ourselves in.

Now working remotely they have set up studio’s wherever they are situated around the world.

The creative spaces, have put together so quickly, are a testament to their desire to carry on creating.

Tomorrow we have the third collection of student’s images and the 4th post will be guess which staff’s studio this is!

Starting Today: These Times

and HOW WE MAINTAINED FOCUS.

In light of the world pandemic Bath School of Design are undertaking immediate steps to ensure that, although working remotely, our design students are engaged, focussed and supported in their studies.

From now, until this situation rights itself, and we are able to interact socially, we’ll be dedicating the blog to how our Textile Design for Fashion and Interiors students are coping and making the very best of what they have.

Of course, they’re some of the most creative people around, what else would you expect ?

This first blog post celebrates how, within 6 days, they travelled home, some across the world, and set up studio immediately, ready to throw themselves back into work and start creating immediately

We salute you. You tenacious, talented people.

WOW! I still can’t believe this. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

When it was announced last year that I was shortlisted for Ones to Watch 2020 – Female Business Leader, I thought it was a scam junk email 🙈. I just couldn’t believe it. So to find out it was real and I’d not only been shortlisted but ended up winning my category was a complete shock!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

This is a huge achievement for me and DND as my first award, I’m so excited to see where this year will take me now.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

A massive thank you to the @princes_trust_bristol who nominated me and for Enterprising West for the award 🏆
