Photoshoot at Belsay Hall

So after a stressful night before and a last minute model change, I did actually go through with my photo shoot at Belsay Hall. And I must admit trying to verbally explain what you want and direct a model (especially with a sleepless night behind you), was much harder than I thought. The hall was also much busier than I had anticipated.

Here a a few snaps of us on thee shoot...

Hand and Lock?

Well the placement at Hand and Lock was an amazing experience. I acquired plenty of knowledge on both the industry and the craft. I also had a great time and got to meet some amazing people.

Very kindly the company have boosted my skills to include silk shading, as well as learning how to use an industrial sewing machine and new techniques on the application of my embroidery.

And most important of all I ended up sewing on the letters onto the slippers that Rob webb wears in the compare the meerkat advert, how exciting haha!

AN AMAZING experience and I would reccomend any design students interested in embroidery to try and do a placement here.
