BA (Hons) Textile Design
My degree at NUA has given me the opportunity to expand my creative practice by learning new skills, developing competencies in weaving and printing as well as my enthusiasm for patchwork.
To develop my printing skills, I worked with natural dyes over the last year, combining bundle dyeing and screen printing. Inspiration for the patterns came from geometric designs that are found in nature. The softness of the bundle dye and the sharpness of the geometric designs combine beautifully, also being sustainable.
Through live briefs with real creative businesses, I have learned that clear communication and professionalism is at the heart of any good working relationship. I thrive in a busy environment and can work on multiple projects at once, ensuring deadlines are met. I also had the opportunity to organise some sewing workshops, working with vulnerable people in the community.
