Having graduated in textiles, I am aware of key trends within design and the techniques and processes that the fabric undertakes from start to finish, this knowledge has helped me to be a strong stylist and merchandiser in creating a story for the customer to connect with.
Translating designs on paper to woven samples, suitable for Interior or Fashion production. In this course, I was able to research into trends, gather primary research, keep up to date with techniques and designers to gain knowledge within the field. Whilst studying weave, I had hands on experience in fabric dyeing, measuring yarns for task in hand, source natural dyes, learn how to set up a loom for weaving process and hand weave. I also gained experience in Jacquard weave, to design from CAD and translate to woven sample.
