The students in the ‘Mark Making with Stitch’ class at Victoria College of Art may have looked and sounded as though they were just playing with a pile of textiles but they were in fact working.
They assembled a collection of different fabrics with potential for the Self Applique technique.
They collected samples of shot weave….
… considered the reverse side….
…and experimented with patterns.
Then they made samples using their own painted cotton.
They all decided it was a technique with great potential.
