Deep Ecology Lecture...

Posted by Zoe Fletcher on Thursday, October 8, 2009
We had a great lecture out in the woods yesterday with Kate Fletcher, it was lovely to know that just a ten minute walk from Belsize Park Tube Station was a little piece of nature (disrupted only a little by an airplane every 15 minutes!) We paired up and one of us was blindfolded whilst the other showed us where to walk and what to was amazing how many ordinary things felt completely different to how you believed they would...even the silky textures of a leaf were amazing to touch but took a while for my brain to register what it was!! After the lecture we then had a lovely picnic on the bandstand with some amazing handmade cakes!!


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.
