DAY FOURTEEN (14th August)

Posted by Zoe Fletcher on Sunday, August 15, 2010


*A morning swim in the infinity pool, whilst listening to the crashing waves right next to us, was definitely a unique wake up system!

*We visited a coconut shell button making shop – they are made in the ladies own homes then sold in a small outlet on the outskirts of Galle.

*Visiting Jeffrey Bawa’s house (a famous Sri Lankan Architect) was a really relaxed way of exploring Galle’s tropical countryside, with interesting sculptures and intricate attention to detail surrounding every aspect of his immaculate house.

*Stopping at an amazing bakery and having cheese straws with marmite on, and a huge sugar laden ‘doughnut’ gave me a much needed sugar boost.

*We visited the Educate A Child Trust, who gave us such a warm welcome with flower necklaces and an amazing costume dance performed by a group of pre-schoolers, whilst telling us about the great community work they are doing.


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.
