DAY SEVEN (7th August)

Posted by Zoe Fletcher on Friday, August 13, 2010

*Beautiful ride to the Tea factory through hills filled with tea plantations, teac trees and tobacco plants – it was amazing to see them still making it with the same machinery they used hundreds of years ago.

*We went to The Botanical Gardens and I spotted Beth’s infamous Upas Tree – we were all very excited and glad it wasn’t a figment of her imagination heehee!

*Lunch was served under a giant Banyan tree which sheltered us from the sweltering heat.

*We then travelled to Kandy’s big market and saw everything from fruit to pigeons on sale!


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.
