Lily Day (L5)BA (Hons) Textile Design
My starting process for each new project is to find and photograph inspiration from my immediate surroundings. Nature is my biggest inspiration and anything colourful that catches my eye. I love to work with bright tones in unexpected combinations.
I initially respond to my photographs through drawing and will then move on and work with lots of different materials to create yarn windings – this helps me to define a strong colour palette. Having recently discovered knit, I have enjoyed exploring colour through texture, and I enjoy mixing yarns and colours together in this way.
