Britain is known as a ‘sea faring nation.’ However, where do we stand now with our maritime environment changing so rapidly? ‘Time and Tide’ explores British coasts and fishing communities and the growing pollution of plastic in our oceans. The project is inspired by traditional fisher people work and knitwear such as aprons, lace shawls and also fishing paraphernalia. The collection is made from majority wool fibres contrasted with plastics and melting yarns. It aims to repurpose waste plastics such as discarded packaging and fishing line into functional aspects of knitwear design. This has been developed through melting and trapping materials within the knitwear. This reflects the experimental yet controlled and intricate nature of the project  and myself as a designer. Below is a small selection of my final collection. (2019)
