Knit and Stitch Show
On Friday 9th October the Year 1 Textiles and A2 Textiles students visited the Knit and Stitch Show at Alexandra. This is a great opportunity for the students to completely focus on textiles. Some of the high points were the Graduate Showcase, with work showcased by recent graduates who are starting their careers.
The Knit and Stitch Show always has an amazing range of work, with high lights being Kate Jenkins knitted and crocheted fishmongers ‘stitchmongers’, a beautiful stand of knitted fish, prawns, lobsters etc glistening with sequins and beads.
In the selling hall there was a market atmosphere, with stalls close together selling all kinds of materials, yarns, beads, threads and fabric for every textile process.
Again it was a great show with much inspiration to take away from it.
