It is actually almost here… Degree Show 2012!

30 Apr

I am currently working very long hours day in day out to get everything finished in time for  my assessment which is just over a week away! For more information about my upcoming degree show at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in Dundee please have a look at the following webpage: http://www.dundee.ac.uk/djcad/degreeshow/studentsexhibiting/textiledesign/samanthacleminson/

Last week I had my first ever fashion photo shoot which I found quite challenging, as I normally capture still life compositions and take landscape photographs whilst walking in the Lake District. Below are a few photographs which show two of the pieces from my degree show collection.

Degree Show Progress

7 Apr

My degree show is very fast approaching and I am currently experimenting with my pieces on a mannequin and beginning to construct some quirky accessories. Through the creation of twelve unique, irregular shaped knitted accessories I hope to encourage people to treasure and appreciate one of a kind textile items as opposed to purchasing low quality, mass-produced products. The accessories are intended to appeal to an individual searching for something eye-catching and unusual.

Unlike other collections the accessories are not limited to a specific season. This is because the twelve pieces are representative of the twelve months of the year as well as the number of hours found on a traditional analogue pocket watch. Below are some photographs of the items I am currently working on, the images do not show finished pieces only ideas and suggestions of what the final piece will be.
