Mount Stuart

Creative Exercise

This creative inspiration section brings you imagery to inspire thoughts of colour and pattern. You might use the inspiration images to generate your own design ideas for knitting or drawing, or you might just enjoy the distraction of seeing some new places.

These exercises explore different aspects of Scotland – its landscape, legend and detail. The idea is to use these sources to make a swatch inspired by each place. Have a look at the first Creative Inspiration by following the link below, and then have a look at the swatches on the Swatch Process page.
