I decided it would be a good experience to help with this and perhaps see first hand what was involved. The answer is simple ... lots of work!
I helped Deb Bunn who works under the name of sweetmurmuration.
Debs main focus for her final show was a range of beautiful silk scarves developed from her love of the local area and its land marks. We had lots of fun and a bit of stress but the final outcome was good!
Not the best images but they give a flavour.
Other students whose work I enjoyed include Cheryl Jackson whose work has a great retro feel
Dyane Brown who created a beautiful wedding dress using the tradition craft of felting - this has definitely been brought into the 21st C
Melanie Kyles who uses found garments and settings and reworks them into contemporary adornments
Laura Gee who created a fun children's collection based on the ever popular dinosaur theme
