Some of my recent university work!

I've been given so much work recently, and i'm nearly done! (ish...)

For my drawing unit of my course, the brief was to produce a sketchbook of ideas that could inspire clothing and/or silouettes,
based on a colour of my choice. I chose red :)

I used loads of different mediums; paint, pastel, ink, melted candle wax, tracing paper, thread and spray paint!

Here's a few pages of what I have done so far!
(You could call it experimenting, or you could call it mess...)

Still a lot more to do!
More to come when its finished...

I'm in the paper...

I was recently asked to write a small passage for my local newspaper.
My secondary school had a 4 page spread in the paper, with students writing articles about the school and subjects.
I wrote about the technology department (in which I studied for my Product Design Textiles A Level) and got to show the final garment I had created!


Note, the quote from the little boy doesnt have anything to do with my article... :)


Scarf is finished!
Pictures will arrive sooooooon
