LCF. This week I am anticipating the arrival of my new helper Derya who will be helping me for 4 weeks with patterns and sewing. She is from Berlin and I had been her tutor when she came to the UK as an exchange student. We always had a great rapport and she has a very mature approach to work – her last placement was at the McQueen studio. I installed myself into the Research office interview space for the day to be able to brief some students. I also had a meeting with Anthea Godfrey at the LCF, who is a specialist in embroidery techniques. We spoke about the future of such crafts and ways of finding ways of incorporating such techniques into the project.
