Hi, I'm Imogen

I have recently graduated from The University of Dundee with a First Class Honours degree in BDes Textile Design. I am currently studying MA Textiles at Nottingham Trent University and I will be graduating in July 2023.

After completing my A Levels in 2018, I moved to Dundee to do an Art and Design General Foundation Course at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design. During that year, I completed projects that gave me an insight to a variety of different disciplines and it was then that I found an interest for Textile Design.

Over the course of the degree, I came to specialise in knitting and gained experience on both Domestic and Dubied knitting machines. I have broadened my knowledge in various areas of textile design, including the properties of different yarns, advanced knitting techniques, and fashion illustration.

One of my favourite parts of the design process is the initial concept development because it gives me the opportunity to establish a purpose for my designs. Themes such as place, memory, and identity are examples of concepts that underpin my work. I have continued to deepen my understanding of these themes throughout my Masters to inform my practical work. In my spare time, I enjoy working on DIY craft projects, going for walks and drawing.
