I missed a class due to health and so had to play catch up. I paired up with a class mate and we combined our themes to make a quick sketch to turn into a print.
We painted it onto tracing paper and then made out screen for our silk screen printing!
it was simple, but it was really just for experimenting with.
First up we prepared a few pages and fabrics to print onto.
which we then printed onto…
this created a fabulous print that I’m rather proud of.
At the same time I was messing about with photoshop and so I manipulated the prints by either adding quotes
or a random cow…
so my cubicle so far comes complete with a shelf, curtain, table, chair and a large piece of paper folded to form a ‘wall pocket’ for scrap material
It has within it a clip on black veil I’m working on, the top of which is a bow and which has a newspaper rose and will have depressing words embroidered through it in wool. I sort of developed it from the idea of the advert about mental health where people remove their masks as the end of the day and reveal how they really feel.
The idea with this is that it is there, trailing after the person. It is a part of them, but not all of them.
I made a fashion mood board to predict the fashion of spring/summer 2014 and it adorns one wall.
I love cross stitch so along the top of my cubicle there are some of my small samples. As well as (pictured below) some of my 3d sculpture samples.
Randomly stuck to one wall is an experiment in couch and stitching ribbon to cotton.
as well as a random monoprint and some crocheted granny squares attached by left over thread.
The Paper sculpture is based off the idea of atomic structure and when perfected will hopefully not only look like it does above but actually stay where it has been placed instead of falling down.
printing making samples also line the walls to add a splash of colour
the shelf store my wire work trials (including my investigation into fluffy wire!)
Finally I have a large pencil drawn outline of a model pose for fashion drawing with the head levels marked as a quick reference guide while working. (I stuck on a paper witch hat as Halloween is near)
Andy Warhol exhibition opens at Scottish Parliament and I’d love to see it. I missed an exhibition at the Mac in Belfast and if I had the money I’d nip over to see this exhibition, while financially I assume this is not to be the case I can live in hope.
