Designer, Artist, and former Craven College Lecturer Joan Murray visited the College this week to deliver a weaving workshop to year 2 Fashion & Textiles students.

Joan specialises in knitting and weaving for fashion and brought a huge range of samples, garments, and artwork to share with the students. 

Joan is just one of the incredible local artists who visit the College on an annual basis and works to inspire students with top-tier experience, knowledge, and creative designs.

Students will use the weave techniques taught at the workshop to develop ideas for their current project ‘The Mill’ which will later be showcased at a fashion show in 2024. Ideas for the project may focus on a make-up look, sculpture, fashion garment, photograph, or digital image. 

Lecturer in Art & Design, Laura Lee Brennand said “The session was wonderful. Joan is so inspiring and the students were completely engaged throughout.”
