About Joelle … Joelle Harris recently graduated with a First Class Honours Degree in Textiles at Hull School of Art and Design. An interest in the natural world and the craftsmanship involved in construction of the industrial past, inspire her to cultivate high standards of expertise in her specialism. Joelle loves the tactile qualities of textiles and expressing her creativity through messy experimentation. She explores and enjoys how diverse processes such as dye, print and hand stitch sit together in surprising ways.
Protecting the natural environment is a major concern for Joelle, she explores ways to challenge the paradigm of industrial fashion and the use of dyes and chemicals that pollute rivers, by experimenting with dyes made from locally available materials with the aim of creating beautiful useful and wearable textiles.
