Fashioning the Future Awards

I’ve been working on my ZERO project(it was one of my MA projects) to submit to The Fashioning the Future Awards. This competition’s focus is on sustainability so I thought my ZERO project should fit well. You can check my ZERO project for the designs and more samples. Here are some images of new garments in process of making. I have made two new looks so I will post photos of the completed garments after I do a photo shoot!

working for workshops

I will be teaching at Tea&Crafting as a embroidery tutor.
They run various handicraft workshops in which you complete one project in a day and go home! I’ll be doing the embroidery workshop once or twice a month. The first image is a template of the basic stitches to be learnt in the beginner class. The others are some samples I’ve made as ideas for the 2 hour workshop.
