Under The Sea - free motion machine embroidery then painted with dyes
Drawing with linseed oil, white acrylic and a graphite stick
I know people are interested in the techniques we are learning are on the HND course. One of the modules last year was Introduction to Surface Decoration and Textile Techniques and this year we are doing the Advanced level. I realised I haven't posted any photos so before I finish advanced level here is some of last years work:
The process was based on drawings we did of sweeties (wine gums, choc buttons with hundreds & thousands, etc), crispy crinkly cupcake cases, make up bags and contents and sewing kits. Making collages, scattering tiny sweets and drawing lots of detail. From these drawings we constructed paper and then textile designs.
We were required to make 20 in all so this is just a small sample. It was a fun and interesting project which I really enjoyed. Comments welcome.
