Niamh Branna has just graduated from GSA in Textiles with an eclectic weave of textures and clashing colours clamoring for attention in her portfolio.
Sensory stimulation is the fundamental experience within my final collection. Sampling and exploration thrives to capture the essence of a fun and bright sensory overload for individuals enriched with interactive qualities encouraging an experience between the textile and the individual. Public engagement through my collection shall focus on visual impact, touch, sound and material exploration. Sampling includes a range of yarns as well as wire, plastics, sponge and feather. The infusion of traditional techniques and unusual materials has created striking and playful samples each with their own individual personalities and specific qualities. Niamh Brannan
