1 – Using materials that I consider to be traditional make at least 2/3 experimental samples – I have chosen pure wool felt and silk, in this instance silk organza.
2 – Refer back to the list of words associated with traditional and use at least 2 or 3 to define the qualities I would like to achieve in my samples – my chosen words are LIGHT, HEAVY ( represented by translucent silk, and thick wool felt), worn (represented by burn holes and frayed edges), variation ( represented by the differences in silk to wool and the changing textures with hand and machine stitch, and textural (represented in the visual and physical textures)
3 – Finally develop one to a finished product.
4 – Write evaluation
These are photographs images of my experimental samples finishing with my resolved sample.
Following are some detailed photos to show the textures – hard to capture as only white but useful to see.
