Second Year Extended Diploma Students on the Design pathway reassembled damaged and unwanted crockery inspired by the work of Zoe Hillyard.
They wrapped each fragment with salvaged fabrics, stitching by hand to reassemble them into newly constructed forms.
During the project we have focused on working solely with salvaged materials to create woven and constructed textiles.

Inspired by collaborative drawings & responding to the theme of the Exquisite Corpse, our 2nd yr ED students have developed fabric & created characters. Translating the expression and personality through selection of fabric and the application of a range of techniques including machine and hand stitch techniques.
Zoe Wright, a textile artist based at the Krowji studios in Redruth, took time out from her busy schedule to give an informal chat on the realities of being a full time ‘Creative Maker’ and a chance to see some of Zoe’s beautiful work first hand followed by a workshop creating textile pieces using free motion machine embroidery.
The students were great, some of which had never used a sewing machine before, and everyone managed to create a beautiful piece of work.
