Knitted work from our graduate

"My favourite parts of the 4 modules was learning new simple and complex stitches. I loved the variety of design challenges and completing my first designed wearable item. My tutor’s feedback was invaluable. It encouraged me to experiment and motivated me to keep on track with the modules.."

Susan Rorison - Hand Knitting

Studetn Feedback from Patricia McCarthy

"Having completed my two years, I think the most useful learning tool was the development of a structured approach to design. I learnt how to go from an idea in my head to a completed design and all the steps in between."
