BA (Hons) Textiles

Lauren McNicholl

Architecture is at the heart of every city, the scale and construction of city buildings is foreign to that of my Irish hometown and is my inspiration for my final woven collection. Influenced by the Bauhaus movement and contemporary designers Wallace Sewell, I have designed a range of scarves that play with colour through exploration of hidden patterns and shades found within my paintings. I love to exaggerate colour and using silk I have hand dyed, my entire collection to create a unique, sophisticated colour palette that captures the essence of my paintings through weave.
