Cambrian Mountains Design Challenge 2015

I was very pleased to be a finalist in the Cambrian Mountains Design Challenge.  The aim of the project was to design and make a project using Cambrian Mountains wool from the heart of Wales.  I submitted designs for furniture pieces upholstered with fabric made using the wool.  My design used a traditional Aran stitch, combined with crochet, my first piece that combined both knit and crochet in the same pieces.  The project was perfect for my focus on British wool - the Cambrian wool was lovely to work with and was very suited to the fabrics I had designed.  A variety of pieces have been made by designers using the wool, and the pieces will be on a tour of the UK until the end of 2015.  Details of the exhibition venues can be found on the Cambrian Wool website
