Ask Why // Manchester School of Art Degree Show 2012 // Embroidery

The above shots are my favourite pieces from the embroidery students. The work varied greatly with whimsical pieces such as the very feminine lingerie by Freyia Porteous to the bold, almost gaudy installation by Hayley Godfrey that showcased a nostalgic collection of kitsch items. The use of texture in Jodie Heaton's work was a great contrast to the muted grey tones. Whilst Benjamin Fletcher's work incorporated several types of media and various imagery to create a piece laden with hidden symbolism.
