The Winchester BA degree show is great and well worth a visit. Naturally I was drawn to the textiles and weave students.
Some of the weaves were really strong and I was intrigued to see that quite a few of the students used monofilament or silk filament yarn to create transparent areas contrasted with heavier yarns.
During my degree I was really interested in creating layers within my weaves. These weaves reminded my of this. I have never used silk filament. There aren’t many things that make me anxious but this seems easy to get into a mess with.
I love going to the different degree shows. They are so inspiring. There is always something new and experimental in the textiles.
