Well first let me apologize for not posting at all for AGES!
See, since we’ve been home for the summer, I have not got internet in my house! so I’ve been doodling and creating things on illustrator for me to use next year if needed, but I have done no blog/research work till now! I have got a lot of spare times on my hands, but unfortunately for me, this summer has been un-motivational to anything textile related.
I bought a chair to do up, but, well that never happened, because you need money to do these things, and that is something I do not possess at the moment, so until then, I will be just planning and giving myself things to do with my spare time when I’m back in university (and have money!)
But instead of my rambling, let me tell you what’s new in the Cardiff Metropolitan Textiles. Minus the fact that they are really useless and I don’t know how they can operate a department, if they can’t operate a blackboard page? Having sent out new project to the people of now 3rd years, we haven’t had the brief, so we’ve had to go by what somebody else has sai8d, so a very bad start!
But the new project is Welsh wool. sustainability and ‘up-cycling of it. Well It does come in handy I guess since we’re in the heart of Wales and we near St Fagan’s, The wool museum and many other galleries museums showcasing welsh wool!
To be honest I am looking forward to this project at the moment, If they’re looking for us to create a modern, but still in touch with the traditional side of it, then digital textiles (which i now have a passion for) will be a very creative way of doing it!
Okay there’s enough on this post, loads more to come today though to show what I’ve done this summer!
