drawing – engineered prints for scarves
The Shared Scarf Project is all about co-design. Master’s student Jen Ballie, The Textile Sampler, is testing out techniques of interactive, experiential design, by hosting free workshops. I went to one where we were exploring ideas for engineered prints for scarves, where I came up with the idea above, the watercolour buckling layers of tracing paper, creating an illusion of atmospherical depth. The one below I doodled over a roast dinner with friends on Sunday.
I very rarely work with colour and pattern alone, trying this out has been fun. It reminds me of embroidery, minute details executed carefully.
