DAY 2 (2nd August)

Posted by Zoe Fletcher on Friday, August 13, 2010

*We did our presentation for the British Council – it went well and they really enjoyed the film.

*We experienced our first trip in a Sri Lankan Tuc Tuc and headed to Pettah market for an experience of beautiful temples muddled in amongst the hustle and bustle of market life.

*It was Beth’s birthday so we headed to Mount Lavinia Hotel which has a restaurant called Seafood Cove right on the beach – it was amazing fish and Beth’s shrill scream at the waiter when she though he was a wave added to the evenings festivities!


Zoe Grace Fletcher Currently undertaking a PhD at Manchester Metropolitan University within the MIRIAD post-graduate department, I am beginning a practice based academic journey into British wool fibres and new technologies within knitwear design. Graduating with Distinction from a Masters in Fashion and the Environment at London College of Fashion, specialising in hand-knitting and the British Wool Industry, I have worked on a number of knitwear collections (personal and external companies), whilst freelancing and researching for a number of exciting projects. My work revolves around the idea of sustainable fashion from a knitted perspective and the different ways to achieve this incorporating the ideas of slow fashion into mainstream society. I love knitting. And wool. And double sided sticky tape.
