Knitting and stitching

On Friday 18th November, Year 11, 12 and 13 Textiles & Fashion students visited the ‘Knitting and stitching’ show in Harrogate.

The show brings together hundreds of textile workshops, demonstrations, textile art exhibitions and stalls from over 200 of the leading specialist craft suppliers. This year’s show was bursting at the seams with creativity and innovation! Students spent their time at the show gathering primary research, interviewing the exhibiting artists and designers, along with shopping for materials and equipment to support their current Textiles & Fashion projects.

“Students and staff had a fantastic day exploring all that the Knitting and stitching show had to offer this year”, said Miss Simms. “There were so many exciting new techniques and processes explored in the graduate work being exhibited, which will be beneficial to all the students. We can’t wait to see the inspiration come through in their current projects!”
