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.

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!
