The Broken White is a sustainable collaborative textile installation that has been created by students on the MA Textiles course at the Winchester School of Art, and will be exhibited for the first time during the upcoming Interim Show.
Using fabric waste from the fashion industry, each of the 19 students created individual design samples utilising traditional textile techniques such as stitch, weave and knit over an intense two day creative workshop. These samples were then joined to create the final piece which measures 2m x 1.8m.
Alongside this centrepiece each of the 19 students will be exhibiting samples of their work so far during this academic year. This has been selected from project led work focusing on printed textiles for either the fashion or interior market, and the creation of innovative, sustainable and environmentally responsible new textiles created from waste material.
