Using scraps of paper from Tuesday visual studies lesson, I created a series of collaged responses in the syle of 6 artists, including Rodchenko,Rachel Cattle, Craig Atkinson,Ken Kiff,
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.
Quick Designs based on the phrase "What IF?"

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.
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.
