My final year collection has been based on the transparent and ethereal effects of light and shadow qualities on everyday surroundings. Photographing both naturally and artificially occurring shadow compositions informs the shapes, textures, colour, yarn quality and structures used in my woven collections. Creating intricate cut work drawings and photographing them behind light sources mimics the intended purpose and function of the fabric I’m aiming to achieve. Unconventional weaving…

Wow, this is some of the most unusual knitweave (?) I've seen Really interesting use of vastly different materials.

Contrasting traditional techniques such as macrame and knot-making with unconventional materials, this project explores architectural forms and optical illusions.

Primarily taking inspiration from European architecture, this project explores perspective and angles. With emphasise on contrasting textures and surfaces, these designs aim to give fun and visually stimulating textiles.

A collection of 3D woven fabrics inspired by the optical 3D nature amongst architecture. Using a range of active yarns which react with heat and finishing techniques, this collection displays structural fabrics with contrasting colours throughout to enhance the 3D and optical qualities. A fun collection full of colour and movement through the structural qualities. Awarded the Incorporation of Weavers Innovation Prize 2015.
