Prospectus and Roll Up

So I was just walking around college, on my way to the printer and I spotted a big roll up, advertsing our course and as I got a bit closer I noticed, theres only a big picture of one of my pieces of work from first year on it ! I then opened the new prospectus and found it in there too ! Amazing ...

Uni Update... I've been sponsored !!

So since my last blog update - quite a bit has happened, my bay at uni is up and full of inspirational images, ready to inspire me for my minor project named 'Industrial Flora' . My theme is based upon fusing two unlikely elements together, fusing industrial imagery such as pylons and steel work with soft, natural floral imagery. I'm well on the way with development now and can't wait to start experimenting with embroidery on top of some digital print designs, i'll post some pictures once i'm away with it !

And the other big news.... I've been sponsored ! The first week at back at uni, I received a letter from Madeira Threads saying that they were willing to sponsor me for my final year. How great is that ! I can't wait to start shopping and gathering some threads from them for my major project.
