A few weeks ago, I attended the campaign for wool exhibition, the first time I attended was back in 2012 when it was showcased at Somerset House. At the time, I had an interest in knitting and the desire to create in a more creative way. I found the exhibition really inspiring and discovered a whole new world about different types of wool and how it can be used.
This year campaign for wool was held and showcased in a beautiful home in East London. Which gave a real homey feel and an amazing opportunity for people to see how they're able to incorporate wool in their homes, I did not want to miss it so I made sure I was their, I was in fact the first person to arrive at 9:30am on a Saturday morning, which gave me enough time to capture moments.
The wool campaign was launched in 2010 as a way to educate consumers about the benefits of wool and why we should use it. each year, the campaign works with fashion, interior and artisans design lead activities centred around wool. Unfortunately, I missed a lot of the practical workshops, however, I did attend a talk centred around styling your home with wool, which I found really beneficial, especially as I have a strong interest for knitted interiors.
One of my favourite pieces was a wall hanging in the living room designed by Jacqui Fink also know as the 'Little Dandelion' her work is simply amazing, she's one of my favourite textile artists. littledandelion.com
