Friend of Prick Your Finger Martine Rose is looking for help knitting /crocheting hats for her upcoming show at LFW.
If you need the experience and want to get into fashion this is a good chance to get your work seen and credited at LFW plus you get pics for your folio!
Heres the info she sent us....

Martine Rose, is a young menswear brand that has shown on schedule at LFW for the past 3 seasons,and has just been selected for MAN catwalk show SS10. Primarily a shirt label, it has now developed into full looks fusing traditional elements with strong references to sportswear
I am looking for a knitwear student/graduate,who would be interested in making hats for the show, which would feature on the catwalk.There would be between 4-5 hats all random styles and all knitted/crochet

It would be an interesting project,where the student/graduate would have the opportunity to showcase there work on the catwalk at LFW, obviously get full credit and images for the portfolio.

The show is on the 22nd September so the time frame is quite tight.

If you might be interested, please contact me as soon as possible



Congratulations to all our friends who worked so hard, helping us construct this amazing snakes and ladders board for the Wellcome Collection. These are the pictures that the Wellcome library took, and in high resolution we can see every loving stitch you made.

For those of you who didn't see it, it is approx 8ft square, and embroidered on tie dyed printed aiva canvas with black PVC snakes and brown felt ladders. Printed on each square were drawings of microscopic pictures of nutrients and bacteria, with numbers on top. Embroiderers had free reign to decorate in any way they wished. The spots on the dice and counters were made with hand made felt. Made by friends of Euston Timebank and Prick Your Finger.
