Bath Spa MA Design Show -Textiles
The 2012 Bath Spa University MA show at the American Museum was excellent.
The stitch detail on Frances Bayliss’ colourful contemporary bags was very interesting. Here is a 360 view of the show allowing you to zoom in to catch them.
Sandra Doerfel’s coats made from sympatex are stylish and totally waterproof. Sandra won the SPO Award 2012 Outdoor category for Sympatex with her rainjacket design.
Linda Row’s fabrics focused on electromagnetic fields. I wove a fabric sample to try out a yarn she had developed with good result.
Penny Wheeler’s handwoven textile art and Bronagh McCauley’s linens for interiors, Desiree Goodall knitted garments were also very interesting.
