The 3rd year students continue to impress.
Alumni Rebecca Connolly 2016 has been showing her amazing skills at Decorex
On the British Wool / Country Life Magazine ‘Design Sense” stand at Decorex International 2017, flanked by Brintons Carpets , Roger Oates Design and Zoffany Fabrics and Wallpapers as interior design businesses who all use British Wool as an important part of their brand story.

I wove a design created for the occasion in 2 natural grey Herdwick wool yarns.
Above is a sample of her beautiful work
