The sun is shining and stifling me in my room down in London...whilst I am trying to hibernate away and get my masters final project proposal sorted...not fair!

Anyway apart from feeling like i'm stuck in a heater i've had a great week, here goes...

On Monday I went to visit the British Wool Marketing Board up in Bradford, it was a great day and I had a lovely time being shown around a local weavers and getting to understand a little more on how the British wool industry works and how I can involve this in my work!!


Then on Tuesday I packed my bags to move back down to London, with a quick unpack and change I went to meet up with the other lovely FATE ladies to catch up and go to the private viewing of the Design Museums new exhibition 'Sustainable Futures' - it is a great exhibition and you should definitely go and have a wander around...there is so much information crammed in every corner its quite overwhelming...but nicely presented!!

We have been challenged to complete lots of little tasks for tomorrows big workshop at uni tomorrow so the rest of my week has been taken up with this...and trying to put forward my ideas for my new project in a legible way!!

After a major food shop and clothes clean I feel all set to start back tomorrow...and I shall report back on how the workshop goes...excited!!


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.
