NB. Views and opinions of students in the degree show are their own and do not represent the views of the University.

The work for my final major project has been inspired by the Inuit folk story of Sedna the Sea Goddess and how she came into being.  This story in particular inspired creativity due to it’s resonance of the power that women hold even when they are faced with adversity.

I have taken elements of this story and turned them into prints, textiles, and paper as well as creating a range of neckwear and a storytelling dress, which is my interpretation of the oral history tradition of the Inuit culture.

I love the look of hand-block printed fabric, the individuality of the design and the natural finish that is produced which gives a piece character and hope this comes across in my final designs.
