Textiles in Practice

My work is inspired by the world around us, particularly the unusual and the unexpected. With this in mind I have been conscious of the need to be very experimental in my approach to designing on the loom. The intention to create fabrics that are different has been the driving force throughout my practice this year. The employment of fancy yarns and unusual colour combinations alongside structural explorations of a more three dimensional nature have been intuitively developed on the loom. This has resulted in several design collections, suitable mainly for the fashion and accessory end of the market.

My future aspirations include gaining placement experience in the industry as well as the opportunity to experience textiles in different cultures around the world through travel.
