05 Oct A Workshop with Royal Designer for Industry, Mary Restieaux
Four Post 16 students went to do a textiles workshop in London at Mary Restieaux’s home this September. Mary Restieaux is a Royal designer for Industry and has had a good career in textile design, specialising in woven textiles. Over the course of the day, Mary talked about her career, who she has worked with, and showed examples of her work.
She also offered students advice about working in the design industry. In the afternoon, students dyed their own yarn and then created some colourful wrapped yarn pieces. It was a very inspiring, relaxed and creative day.
