Rowan and Liberty Wool Week Design Award 2013

Two of our graduates, Justin Alves Khan and Maria Ressano Garcia (both Knitted Textiles 2011), have won awards in the Wool Week Design Awards 2013.

Rowan collaborated with Liberty of London and the Royal College of Art to create a unique hand knit and crochet project to challenge the traditional perception of these crafts and to help celebrate the Campaign for Wool and Wool Week 2013.

The first year MA Knitted Textiles and MA Fashion Knitwear students of the Royal College of Art were invited to submit work to answer ‘How can a traditional craft become a source for contemporary and conceptual textile design’?

Justin (centre photo) won first prize and Maria (far right in the photo) won second prize. Congratulations from all of us in the Red Shed!
