After a busy few days I feel I have totally dishonoured this blog!! - and shall try and post a lot more regularly! As I can't remember half the things I have done over the past few days!

After a great get together session with the rest of the MA group, I had the very daunting task (with Beth, Kate and Saida of course!) of standing in front of a the hundred new Masters students beginning at LCF and giving a short presentation about our Sri Lankan experience -TWICE!! There was no major screw ups and hopefully we showed what a great opportunity it was and how lucky we felt to be involved in it! After a quick rush back to central London we re-joined the MA group to have a great discussion about how we were feeling about our projects and how we felt they were progressing! It was great to speak about them openly and also lovely to see how everyone else was feeling and how their projects have progressed over summer!

The rest of the week has been spent at Mare St using the open access rooms to plan/knit/draw, and after a really great tutorial with Sal I now have a clearer idea of how much i need to achieve before next week (!!!!) if i'm to keep myself and my brain from going into melt down!

Today we went to the ICA to see a great new exhibition by a Russian design/art/thinking collective - it was really well presented and had some really interesting ideas of how to challenge current systems and how to present a journey effectively!


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.
