    This project was a collaboration between The School of Materials at The University of Manchester, Manchester City Council and Year 10 textile students at Manchester Academy School.A design brief was given to the textile students based on Manchester City Council’s Be Proud Love Manchester initiative which promotes pride in thecommunity and surroundings. Students were asked to use a number of different drawing techniques to express what they were proud of in their local area of Moss Side, Manchester, and what they would like to change.The most successful designs were then chosen, and a knitted installation was created to represent these ideas by Knitted Textiles Lecturers at The University of Manchester, Kate Sayer and Kandy Diamond.
