WW2 Faces.
Messing around with a pencil,tracing paper,old photographs and a photocopier. Im really happy with the outcome, i've a keen interest in Wartime fashions and lifestyle particularly WW2. I chose the faces of soliders, land girls and housewives, overlaping them. I hope to use this technique in perhaps my textile work, printing this kind of imagery onto fabrics.

Screen Printing on Fabric

I got the oppertunity to try out screen printing on fabric. I transferred my stencilling skills from my print making workshop,to create this design. I was really happy with how it turned out on the various materials I chose.

Prints on a plain and polka dot chiffon.

Prints on denim and cotton.

Headdress Challenge

I was set the task to create a Walter Van Beirendonck headdress using completly different media than the original. (The original was made from balsa wood) I used a bamboo frame, colored tissue paper as pompoms and beige fabric. I used interfacing and bondaweb to make the fabric, which would allow it to stand on its own without wilting.

I was influenced by a WW2 propganda poster. So decided to create my own design.

Quick Press Print designs

I created a series of quick press print designs,using ink on lino and cutting my own stencils. Using a press print resulted in the following images.

Some were successful.. and others weren't.
