Student Showcase : Rachel Thomas

This weeks Student Showcase features 17yr old Rachel Thomas. Rachel is studying a National Diploma in Art & Design here at Truro College and she has a particular liking for textiles.

Rachel is a big fan of textile artists Lisa Stickley and Matthew Harris, and their influence shows in her latest body of work. Working with images from the natural world rachel has used layering, mark making and reverse applique to create some stunning stitched fabric pieces.

Next stop for Rachel is studying a BA in Textiles in Bournemouth this Sept. She eventually hopes to work in the textile design industry and set up her own business featuring her beautiful and intricate fabric work.
