I am settling back in at The RCA quite well, so I thought i'd share with you some sketchbook pages from my tailoring project which was set last week. My concept is still in the early development stages, including choosing my colour palette, yarns and designing silhouettes. I'm making it a challenge which is quite exciting, as I want to have a bit of fun pushing mens tailoring in the realm of knitwear - a bit of a leap from oversized cardigans and sweaters. Let the knitting commence!
Just to let you know, it is my turn to be on duty at The RCA's "Work in Progress" exhibition this Saturday, and here is a sneaky peek at my display. I will be there from 12-1pm so come down and say hello as there's lots of exciting work happening, and I will be more than happy to show you around!
Rushing around doing finishing touches as it is the Private View for the RCA "Work in Progress" exhibition later tonight. All of us level 1 and level 2 students are displaying a little taster of our work for your viewing pleasure, as it is, in progress! The exhibition will be on daily until the 22nd of January so put on your woolies and do come down and have a look around!
Snow keeping me indoors has made me feel like getting lost in a sketchbook and do a fair few illustrations over the past couple of days. Slowly but surely I am trying to get back into the swing of things after a sad, wobbly end to 2009.
Talk about Chilly! Up North it's DEFINITELY balaclava season at the moment, we have had inches and inches of snow and nearing -22 temperatures which mean the snow doesn't seem to want to melt away! Unpredictable weather has meant undrivable roads and unpredictable trains, and delaying my return to London.
All of this snow hasn't gone to waste however, as Victor, my brother Tom and I set about making ourselves a rather fine Igloo one night last week, which I am proud to say is still outside and 'functioning'!
