In:site Festival 2019. September 2019 which took place in Birmingham UK city centre, in the grounds of St Philip’s Cathedral.
The public engaged with a selected group of designer/ makers from across the UK, and beyond, who were showing, demonstrating and sharing their craft skills.
They worked with clay, fabric, yarn and wood/acrylic. I was thrilled to meet up with this year’s graduate Ryoji Morimoto before he returns to Japan next week. ✈️ He had produced such beautiful, coloured, engaging prints that it drew people in to have a closer 👀 . They immediately began to stitch their favourite good luck symbol onto a working quilt. The very best of luck 🍀 Ryoji on your career path as it unfolds in Japan Thank you for being the most generous, kind, talented and thoughtful person during your three years with us in Bath. Our loss is 🇯🇵 gain.
Sarah Skilton, soon to be a 2nd year on BA HONS Textile Design for Fashion and Interiors,has taken the opportunity of an internship and has been working with friend of Bath School of Art and Design, Ekta Kaul.
So far she is having a wonderful time making and researching into new ideas for Ekta to take to shows at Christmas and also for her new collection for autumn/winter16.
Its exciting to get an idea of having your own business and seeing prototypes come in for more development.
