DAY EIGHT (8th August)

Posted by Zoe Fletcher on Friday, August 13, 2010

*We travelled slightly away from Kandy and headed to an ancient wooden Temple which was set high on a hill – it was beautifully preserved and fascinating to see the detailed pictures etched in wood.

*Painfully hot steps led us to our next temple, a friendly tour guide showed us round and let us look at his paintings – they were beautiful and we each chose our favourite one!

*The afternoon was spent at the Elephant Orphanage seeing baby elephants guzzling masses of milk, later on we managed to see them going for their daily walk to the river for a bathe in the cool water!

*We picked up fruit from various village stalls on our journey home and had a lovely tea cooked by Saida and Kate!


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.
