drawing – engineered prints for scarves

drawing — Danielle on May 30, 2011 at 11:09 am

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.

    1. I love them both, but the bottom one is reallyreally perfect. Like, I want it to be a scarf so I can tie up my hair with it reallyreally perfect.

    2. Both prints are beautiful but I`m drawn to the geometric one more. I hope you explore this in your art more. The results are great.
