Part of our regular Gallery Shorts series, we chat to Zoe Acketts – textile designer and lecturer on our BA (Hons) Printed Textile Design and Surface Pattern programme.
Zoe was one of six designer-makers, all college staff, who showed their work for our 'Live Make' exhibition in the Gallery at Plymouth College of Art, which ran from 27 April to 6 June 2015.
Zoe's current practice is dedicated to creating highly tactile textiles that blend functionality and beauty. Having worked as a freelance print/fabric designer and studied at the Royal College of Art, she now specialises in hand weaving, dyeing and making exquisite textile products.
With thanks to Los Campesinos! for allowing us the use of their music – www.loscampesinos.com
