FRANCESCA TILEY & WILL KNIGHT
‘A Tribute to Nahawa Doumbia’s La Grande Cantatrice Malienne’
Tutor : Roderick Mills
A Tribute to Nahawa Doumbia’s La Grande Cantatrice Malienne started out as a collaboration project between Francesca and the graphic designer William Knight halfway through their final year at university. Although initially setting out to design a textile album cover for Doumbia’s music, the immediate and hands-on process of cutting and sewing led them to create more patches than planned. Thus they let the piece grow into a double bedspread sized quilt instead.
