Jessica's Design Looms Large
Northern Scot, 24th August 2018
"Textile designer Jessica Cutler visits Knockando Woolmill to see her design Devon Seasons coming off the loom. Jessica was the winner of the mill’s Woven Textile Designer Award, which invited students or recent graduates to submit innovative and contemporary designs that pushed boundaries. From a shortlist of six designs, Jessica’s pattern was selected as winner and is now in production. Jessica, who studied textiles in practice at Manchester School of Art, said: “It has been amazing to come up here and see it being woven. Knowing my name is going to be on the label and people all over the country are going to be buying the products is really exciting!” The design is being produced as a limited-edition run of only 150 scarves and 35 blankets and can be viewed on Knockando Woolmill’s website."
