Year 1 and 2 A Level Textiles students visited the Knit and stitch Show at Alexandra Palace. This is a great opportunity to see an event focusing completely on textiles. It was a beautiful Autumnal day with clear views across London. The show offered an enormous range of textiles work, with high lights being Sue Stone’s hand embroidered portraits, one for each year of her life. In contrast exciting new work was seen in the ‘Graduate Showcase’ chosen by the Embroiderers Guild.
The show also provided a massive shopping opportunity with many textiles related businesses from all over the country selling their merchandise.
Again it was a great show with much inspiration to take away from it.
