BA (Hons) Textiles in Practice
As a textile designer my work exists at the intersection between play and practicality. I use colour and materiality to explore knit as a vessel for playfulness. My projects often begin with the collection of everyday objects and materials that I then combine with colourful yarns and more 3D knitted structures to make the viewer question the way we interact with the world around us. My work attempts to transform the mundanity of everyday life and the materials that we are surrounded by and transform them into something much more exciting. My work invites the viewer to view the world through a childlike lens to encourage curiosity and inquisitiveness through touch and interaction. My work is also about encouraging dialogue, whether that is about a tangible subject like sustainability or more metaphorically about encouraging people to actually talk to each other through interaction with my work.
