A Holiday Location - my source - Japan



The brief for this project was to take a holiday location, and to bring back an object, a texture and a memory, which were to be incorporated into the design.

I have not been to Japan but have great interest in the country, having friends from there and an interest in their craft of Kumihimo and Bonsai.

I wanted to reflect my interest in the culture of the country.
I hope I manage to capture the essence in this work.

About Me

My photo
I started university later in life than most of my collegues, being a mature student. I have gained a huge amount from my BA, and I am now furthering my knowledge and experience with engagement on MA ADAPT course which I started in January 2010. Some of my BA work is on this blog, along with other textiles and a commission connected with Lace. I am also teaching lace with a class held weekly in Nottingham. Other weekend courses to follow and talks in areas of lace history.
