The aim of Cloth Work MA in Textiles is to explore process and technique and develop new possibilities for the application of felt making, embroidery and print.

Through textile exploration I have developed a strong personal process using feltmaking. The result of this exploration is a strong graphic quality that evokes/mirrors knit and weave.
A quality that can be further developed and enhanced by the application of stitch and partnership with print.

I am conscious that the key fibre used in feltmaking is merino wool imported primarily from the southern hemisphere. I aim to find alternatives, to shift the focus and challenge a dependence on imported fibre.
