Knit A Square

Working on my MA developed my working ethos as a designer. I explored the concept of sustainability within textiles identifying how traditional and sometimes historic skills from the past can contribute to creating more sustainable design for the future. The Knit a Square project formed part of this idea, looking at how a community could work together to contribute to a cooperative project. Each square represented a member of the community and the final product outcomes could then be dismantled to construct different outcomes. I want to translate this within my future work exploring artefact and meaning.

Inspired to Write

“Writing as a way of crystallising thoughts is the attempt to make physical the random flitting thoughts in our head. Practise in trying to capture these flutters is what helps us grow as people and practitioners.”

Pat Francis

Inspired by Francis I aim to take thought and develop it through text to establish my personal link between inspiration and design. Consistency is needed in this process something I need to consciously be aware of. As a practionner my process is thoughtful, my intention is to be more active in my own work and incorporate this element to revisit my own creativity.
