Exhibition Day...

Posted by Zoe Fletcher on Friday, January 15, 2010
I had my Unit 1 assessment tutorial this morning (which went really well!) and then decided that an 'exhibition day' would get me out of the house and hopefully inspire me (and it turns out scare me!) for the next set of projects!! I met with Julia and we went to explore the delights of the RCA work in progress exhibition featuring first and second years work...it was great to see what other institutions are doing and there were so many great pieces of work with some amazing concepts behind them...I look forward to seeing their final exhibition later on in the year! 

I then ventured into the V&A and had a lovely wander around soaking up the different rooms...I had found lots of great information about historical knitting practices on their website that I wanted to see and read more about but unfortunately the textile section was closed when I got to it! Never the less I had a great day (very tiring!) and now feel set to jot down all my new ideas and questions ready to begin my next projects!!


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.
