Symposium – Alice Kettle

One of the designers I really liked from the symposium was Alice Kettle. She is a well known textiles designer and ceramicist and she was talking about the subject area of The Wandering Thread. She thinks of thread as a drawn line therefore she uses her thread as an drawing tool, and created drawn like imagery through stitch. Furthermore she doesn’t just stitch the normal way, she stitches from the back of the fabric and imagines the line. She has an very interesting way of working that makes her work very unique to her and she likes to make statements in her pieces about what is happening in the world today. It was great to listen to her speak about her specialism and get to understand how an designer creates their pieces of work.
