Textiles in Practice
BA (Hons)

Drawing reference from the world around us, I have created a range of tactile fabrics suitable for unisex garment structures.

Recently I have been exploring military embroidery, appropriating a range of traditional embroidery techniques such as tambour beading and goldwork chipping, and applying them in contemporary ways. I have created a diverse collection of high quality and interesting fabrics for fashion that explore colour and surface texture through layering print and embroidery techniques.

 I aim to continue to work as a freelance textile designer after graduating and welcome collaboration opportunities and commissions.
