I feel like I haven’t posted in so long, but its only been a week! I am trying to post something every Thursday and potentially an extra one or two in the week, but I have a lot going on at the moment so my aim for now is one every Thursday.

So I haven’t been blogging recently as it has been very hectic but keep in tune as this weekend I have a few things coming your way!
So I hope everyone is having a lovely week, the weather is a bit gloomy but hey ho. So I thought I would share what I have been recently been up to in my Textiles course.

Our first trip was to Brownsea Island, just off of Poole Harbour to get some primary research for our topic. I was drawn to the category of fungus and different characters with in this title. From the primary research I have developed designs and textures using a variety of media.
