Can you believe episode 20 is already here? Fungi-inspired fabrics. Anna Stoane is a Multidisciplinary Textiles Designer who recently graduated from Edinburgh College of Art.

Fungi-inspired fabrics

Anna’s graduate collection The Hidden Kingdom was inspired by ten species of fungi and their marvellous fruiting bodies. As part of her research for this collection, she visited the RBGE Herbarium to study and photograph a selection of fungi specimens. Fungi and mushrooms have always fascinated Anna, and her explorations started by reading Roy Watling’s Fungi book.

She was inspired by images of clouds of spores being dispersed, mushrooms and elf cups with raised and distorted grids and caged structures, clusters of puffballs, organic wood-like grains, patterns and textures, crinkled and shrivelled mushroom edges and folded gills. Anna uses techniques and materials that stretch the boundaries of textile and fashion disciplines. To Bead or Not to Bead: Historic Beadwork of England and the Americas. Whatsup stitches!!
