The piece of work for this assignment was to make something to wear or a fashion accessory. I chose to make a bag. The fabric was woven on a sixteen shaft loom, using distorted weft pattern. The bag is lined and decorated with a piece of mikalov lace (which resembled a caterpillar) and the strap is made of a kumihimo braid.

- 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.
