About me
I am Rose Fewtrell, a designer-maker based in London. My practice explores the possibilities and limits of colours, textures and form within a given material. Working within a multi-disciplinary environment through BA. Design at Goldsmiths allows me to expand my capabilities on from my foundation degree, gaining extensive knowledge regarding the material world. Through considerable research and experimentation, I continuously strive to push the boundaries of standard materials, exploring them as my communication tool and revealing the unexpected aesthetics that help to alter our perception of those that already exist. Projects evolve from my fascination with material culture, from the past, present and into the future. They are approached in a hands-on manner, using a wide range of traditional techniques and processes such as moulding and casting to re-engineer those that may have become de-valued, allowing their future uses to be reconsidered. Through my degree at Goldsmiths, I have greatly benefited from the mix of individual studies and group collaborations, continuously learning skills from my peers in different fields of design, such as graphics and lm. Outside of this, my retail experience at Boots has allowed me to witness the evolution of material culture, for example the change from plastic to paper bags in order to meet a growing customer demand.
  • Texture of Colour
    Texture of ColourTexture of Colour sees a set of personal experiments that began after the self-analysis of my wardrobe, for I had fallen into the trap of chromophobia, the fear of colour. Yet the fear was not to dismiss my love and appreciation for our colourful world, a brightly coloured front door will always catch my attention and I have an appreciation for colours in the everyday such as the shiny red of post boxes or the neon orange of traffic cones that sit in our roads. I too live in a colourful world, m
  • Wax Atelier
    Wax AtelierI currently work with designers Lola Lely and Yesenia Thibault-Picazo within their company Wax Atelier. Founded in 2017, Wax Atelier re-visits traditional techniques ranging from candle dipping and paper making to textiles dyed using natural wax and colourants. ​ During my time here, I have been involved with the photography of products, production and research & development, with a heavy focus on creating a new recipe for waxed linen food wraps, undergoing a lot of trial and error until the op
  • Texture of Living
    Texture of LivingSelf Directed, BA Materials make up the world around us and with this I began to explore the material library that we create around us in our homes, mainly regarding waste. The idea of delight vs disgust came about when using waste, specifically through my use of hair and dust. By incorporating these waste materials, often seen as disgusting and un-clean when lying around the house, into tile-like experiments, gave the matter a new life, something that may become more common in the future.
  • Soap
    SoapSelf Directed, Foundation My exploration into soap stemmed from investigating states of matter within the material world as the material demonstrates the process of changing from a solid into a liquid. I made my own soap to understand the making process which then led me onto exploring the ‘other side’ of soap. As research continued I became interested into how clean soap really is. When using a bar of soap, we leave it to dry in a warm, moist environment, a breading ground for infestations. To
  • Material Experiments
    Material ExperimentsSelf Directed FMP, Foundation We are surrounded by materials which we associate with notions of value: high-value / low-value. This work aimed to challenge the social and behavioural perceptions of everyday, low-value materials in our environment. To re-evaluate attitudes and responses to substances and the 'readily disposed materials' in our culture is a large task yet this experimental range of artefacts helps to start the conversation by regarding the communication of the ‘beauty’ in low-val
  • Deptford Arches
    Deptford ArchesGroup Project, BA - 'The Environment Keeps Happening To Me' ‘The Environment Keeps Happening To Me’ saw us undertake two deliverables, a 1:25 model of the behaviour observed in our location, Deptford Market Yard and a 1:1 group intervention, considering and framing this around the perimeter of social vs selfish design. Since 1835, the arches have silently observed the life in Deptford and we saw this project as an opportunity to appreciate the rich history held by these structures. Otherwise
