A fact about Sarah King

Sarah King's ideal STEAMlabs delegate

I am a designer maker living and working in the Birmingham area. Drawn to pastel colours, unusual textures and geometric patterns. Happiest when creating new designs and working on new products.

I graduated from the Arts University Bournemouth in 2013 with a BA in Textiles. I specialised in print design and also adopted a mixed media approach to fabric decoration. Following this I worked freelance as a print designer for a range of companies including David Koma and Braccialini Italy. I then took a role as a technician at the university I graduated from and later moved on to Birmingham City University where I worked across all disciplines within the textiles area.

My own creative practice has always been led by experimentation and more recently has fallen into the realm of product design with a keen interest in upcycling. I run my own design brand part time which I use as a commercial outlet for my work whilst I continue to look for ways in which I can push my practice forward to be more original and sustainable.

Day to day you will find me in the print workshop running inductions and support SME’s in the process of developing new products. You may also see me at STEAMlabs and other STEAM related events.

Participants with advanced knowledge in differing areas coming together to solve a common problem.

My goal for STEAMhouse is to help create an environment that facilitates knowledge transfer between sectors but more so encourages honest and open collaborative thinking between individuals.
