Natural History Museum...

Posted by Zoe Fletcher on Thursday, July 23, 2015

I had a little time off whilst down in London a couple of weeks ago, and my favourite thing to do when I get a chance is to have a wander around the museums (In order my top three are: The John Soane, Natural History and the V&A!), and as I was staying at my friends on the West side...I could walk to Kensington quite easily!

One of my favourite things about museums, is the way they display and categorise the exhibits - I know i'm a little weird! - but theres nothing more satisfying than a neatly laid out display of the useful data (now you know why i'm such a stickler when it comes to my sketch books etc!)

The way the animal anatomy section is set out blows my mind - the details, data, measurements and though that has gone into the placement of exhibition pieces is beautiful...I tried to find some sheep-y things but to no avail...maybe I was in the wrong section! Maybe I could create a whole section dedicated to the different breeds of Britain...a girl can dream!

I'm off to take some snapshots of my sketchbooks to get some more inspiration of how to display further work...


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.
