BA Textile Design

Michaela is a contemporary textile designer and craftsperson.
Michaela’s practice investigates each element within the production process of woven textiles, exploring the potential for developing sustainable, circular ways of working that do not generate needless waste. Michaela’s hand-spun yarns are created from new and known fibres and coloured with her own natural dyes, which she makes from foraged and homegrown materials. She weaves her fabrics on handlooms, jacquard and homemade back strap looms. Motivated by functional, purpose-driven design, her working processes simultaneously look to the future and draw upon production methods from the past.
