Textiles in Practice

Recently I have been developing my invention of a new, biodegradable and flexible fabric that I have named "Bio-Marble". My work is driven by my concern for the environment and I hope it will help promote sustainable thinking for those that view it.

I have noticed how much paper is wasted in Manchester School of Art, therefore my unique material recipe includes unwanted paper collected within the building. Through recycling this paper, I have reduced waste and helped the environment.

I have been selected to create work for Bruntwood offices in Manchester and for Manchester School of Art’s Vertical Gallery. Bruntwood has awarded me with the ACID Copyright Prize and I have also won the GK Gallery Solo Show Exhibition Award. I plan to submit my work for exhibitions and commissions in the future and I intend to apply for an MA at either CSM’s ‘Material Futures’ or the RCA.
