Personal Project

Over the summer I have been tasked with a Personal Project; a project which I have to self direct and choose the topic of which to base it on. The spectrum is so wide and varied. I have decided to explore purely process - stitch, dyeing, folding and manipulating fabrics and understanding the materials I love working with.

My aim for when I return to university in September is to have a swatch book and sketchbook exploding with tests and experiments. For now I am concentrating on technique and process forgetting about ideas and meaning. Sometimes the pressure of giving my work meaning destroys what I can achieve. I would also like to look at Japanese crafts and craft techniques should I find enough time :D

I will keep a research file and will post my findings weekly to compare and contrast notes and techniques.

I have been on a shopping trip to a local haberdashery and am armed with materials galore! Now for the fun bit of exploring....
