I am working on a new work for a Surface Design Association exhibition. It involves a number of different steps and techniques.
Random dyeing the ground cloth.
All of the fabric is worn bed sheets.
Dyeing for an all-over mottled colour.
Another sheet dyed to get a more randomly patterned effect.
Sampling different fabric paints to screen print motifs onto the dyed ground.
Resist dyeing. I tied different sized seeds in the centre of torn squares of cloth.
The tied thread acted as a resist when dyed.
Hand stitching the resist dyed squares.
I keep track of time spent making the work.
