I am currently a master student on the MSc Sustainable textiles technologies at De Montfort University. I have recently graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, where I achieved a First Class Honours in Textile Design with a specialisation in knitted textiles. With a passion for creating innovative and textural fabrics, I bring an eye for detail and a dedication to craftsmanship.
Throughout my degree, I focused on building my skills in both knitted and woven textiles, I learned machine knitting at University and at the Machine Knit community and weaving at my internship at Golden Haand weefcentrum to further improve my weaving skills. Alongside this, I developed a growing interest in the technological aspects of textiles and dyeing.
My honours project looked at combining the two materials, wood and wool into one material and looking at the interplay between these two materials. I focused on creating textural and structural textiles that help create thoughtful and healthy interiors.
Driven by a desire for continuous learning and growth, I have now started my masters degree in sustainable textiles technologies to expand my knowledge and skills in dyeing, knitting, weaving, and the technology behind textile designs. I am actively seeking opportunities to collaborate with like-minded professionals who share a passion for pushing the boundaries of textile design.
