Knitting and Stitching Show Harrogate
For my work experience i volunteered to work on the CCAD stall, at the Harrogate Knitting and Stitching trade show. This trade show is held every year in Harrogate , the show is mainly presents many colleges , universities and companies work which focus there pieces on hand crafted designs. There is a lot of various fabric shops and also workshops where paying visitors can create there own work to take home.Me and my friend phillipa along with 2 CCAD staff worked on the college stall on the last day which was a Sunday .Firstly we had to set the stall out and make sure the work which that was arranged around the stall looked professional and we also had to arrange and style the students work on the table to make it look appealing . As part of our course fundraising some textile students created items to sell on the stall to profit the degree show.We sold quite a lot of various items from the stall and we also got to have a good look round the show , unfortunately the day got cut short due to a blizzard which came about all of a sudden meaning we had to pack up the stall quickly.Overall it was very beneficial beneficial beneficial experience .
