Megan Ferris, currently in her second year of studying Printed Textile Design has won a scarf competion with company Filthy Weather. Her ‘Welcome to Wonderland’ design will be produced as a limited edition silk scarf as well as receiving £400 as part of her prize.
Megan’s scarf design was inspired by the work of Hannah Hoch, the Tim Burton film and other artists such as Polly Morgan, Tim Walker and Ralph Steadman. The scarf focuses on the key characters from Alice in Wonderland, surrounded by famous quotes from the book and strange clocks. Colours were inspired by Salvador Dali’s illustrations using the contrast of bright and washed out shades. Elements of Megan’s own dreams also inspired some of the images in her design. The scarf celebrates the 150th anniversary of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland which takes place this year.
