London Green Fair 2011

Posted by Zoe Fletcher on Sunday, June 12, 2011
I had an amazing time running knitting workshops across the London Green Fair weekend, held in Regent's Park - the Saturday was perfect...sunny, nice breeze, hundreds and hundreds of people wandering through, and we had a fantastic time making pom pom's, teaching people to finger knit, and teaching proper knitting - I met so many amazing children and adults, and made A LOT of pom pom's and knitted necklaces haha!

We had a fab tent, with Saida organising us all amazingly - lots of pretty bunting, great up-cycling workshops, and even a panda face painting stand!

Sunday was not quite as good - rainy and windy - but nevertheless there were a lot of people looking around, and a steady stream of children (and lots of adults) learning to knit - finger knitting was especially popular!

The amazing fashion show (with my beautiful sister modelling!) was fantastic, with a great selection of outfits from amazing designers such as Komodo, monkee genes, Ivan Dauriz and a small selection of my knitwear whoo! Everything went really smoothly and there was a large crowd watching! 


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.
