Exhibition time...

Posted by Zoe Fletcher on Tuesday, June 2, 2009
MADNESS.... that sums up today, yesterday and probably the rest of the week!! I've been setting up the basics for my exhibition, televisions are not sounding so simple now we have to try and attach them to an inch thick piece of wood!! Alex and Alan (my tutors) have been great measuring up and screwing stuff into the walls for me... hopefully (touch wood - haha) its all going relatively smoothly at the moment and my aim is to have all three televisions up by the end of today!!... who says i'm not ambitious??!! Another late night i think as a trip to Ikea is desperately needed to make sure my shelf idea is on track (cubes may have to go on hold as they don't seem to actually do any anywhere.. ever!!) I have been back and forth between Manchester and Bolton, dropping in on parents and grandparents to steal small tv's and nuts and bolts (and a quick sandwich and cake from the best Nanna ever!!) and am now back in the studio until the sun goes down trying to keep on track... updates soon... or whenever I actually get enough sleep to function properly!!


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.
