Charles Darwin School Visit

A few months ago, coraux mei made a visit to a GCSE Textile Design and Technology class at the Charles Darwin School in Kent, England. I gave a short talk on what coraux mei is about and talked about symbolic tribal textiles and what they mean in (namely) H'mong culture. The class had so many questions! It was great to see their enthusiasm. 

To top it off, I set a little task for the class to create their very own symbolic meaningful patterns and designs in repetitive form. It was a very fun morning - watching their designs unfold was really inspiring. Some including 'Macdonalds' logos and burgers!

A few months later, I have found it very inspiring once again after receiving an image of the fruits of their labour!  Handprinted colourful patterned fabric made into an iPhone case (no signs of Macdz or burgers!). Truly GREAT work class! I trust they will do very well now and in future :)

Designers/Makers Interview

Hello all! I hope you all had a marvellous Easter break.

I have given a little interview to the wonderful Designers/Makers - an international agency that hosts monthly craft fairs of independents designers and makers in Spitalfields Market in London, UK.  

If you'd like to read the interview that Verity has really kindly written up, click on the following link: http://designersmakers.com/dm-dialogue/

Looking forward to take part in more of their fairs this coming summer.
