Textiles in Practice

"An Ode to Stoke’

As a textile designer for the future, I believe that it is crucial to make conscious decisions about the materials and processes I use, to make things that are beautiful and useful.

For this final project I looked at my hometown, Stoke-on-Trent, which has a rich history in ceramic making and design and I have often overlooked it as a source of inspiration.

The print collection was inspired by visits to Middleport Factory, Emma Bridgewater, Wedgewood Estate. The materials used are intended to be hardwearing and long-lasting: hessian; and organic cotton, for use in the kitchen or workshop. I have used a range of ceramic printing techniques to create the marks on the fabric. 

Many thanks to the lovely people at Middleport Pottery for support with the photo shoot.
