Sarah Campbell Designs

Hello! A couple of weeks ago we had the delightful Sarah Campbell come into university to chat to us about life as a textile designer. It was such an inspiring talk, and she showed us her fabrics and sketchbooks full of lovely colour palettes and beautiful drawings. I will write a few key points that she made, such an inspiration.

Hornsea Pottery

Hello! Recently I visited Hornsea to go to the seaside as a bit of a break and to look at the Hornsea Pottery Museum. Me and Rob started our collection a few years ago and we still love finding bits and bobs in charity shops. We plan on visiting some events and car boots too to scope out some bargains.

Josef Frank at the Fashion and Textile Museum

This week I went on a very long (nearly 24 hour) day trip to London with some of my lovely friends from uni mainly for a very exciting design job interview, but also to squeeze in a visit to the Fashion and Textiles Museum to see the Josef Frank exhibition.

Angela Harding at Yorkshire Sculpture Park

Last weekend I visited Angela Harding's exhibition currently on at Yorkshire Sculpture Park. I adore handcraft and find woodblock printing fascinating, it is something that I would love to try although I do not have the patience that Angela must have with the fine detail in the original wood blocks.
