Textile Fundraising Success

Each year for the textile degree show, students are asked to raise a certain sum of money to contribute to the organisation of the show. Yesterday, myself and 5 other students packed bags at Marks and Spencer in Newcastle and raised a fantastic £341. This amount greatly succeeded our expectations and we were overwhelmed by people's generosity and kindness to donate. As this day was a triumph we hope to arrange another bag packing event later in the year so we can contribute more money to the textile fund on our behalf.

So I've spent the past 2 weeks in the print room, I'm talking 12 hour days busily working on producing colour samples for my prints, with sampling being one of my favourite stages of the design process. The hours actually go pretty quickly, as I love screen printing and I am in my elements in the print room, an area in which I work very confidently. I already have 4 final prints, all different designs. The deadline for my minor project is this coming Friday, so pictures of my complete collection will be coming very soon, but for now enjoy a few pictures of my colour samples.
