This week our 2nd year knit students visited Brighton and the studios of fantastic knit studio Bobble. You might not have heard of Bobble but you will have worn or seen their designs, selling to everyone from catwalk names including Marc Jacobs to high street retailers such as Oasis. The studio is inspiring and eclectic mix of colours and texture , which opened our students eyes to the vibrant and diverse nature of textiles studios. The students were set a project to produce samples which will be taken to New York and Paris to sell alongside Bobble’s designs. The students are currently preparing. A trend based on comparative and conceptual research, from this they will produce designs on our hand and digital knitting machines to present to Bobble in a few weeks. Thank you Jenny and Helen for hosting and inspiring our students. We look forward to seeing the seeing some amazing samples in the coming weeks.
