I chose to go with fabric collages, my main inspiration came from one particular life drawing session, where we had to draw without looking at the paper.
|Life Drawing without looking at the paper.|
These drawings remind me of an embroidery stitch, particularly the drawing in the middle. Therefore this is where my idea came from.
I also looked at artist Claire Coles, who creates some beautiful sewn scenes using a mix of vintage wallpaper and fabrics. Also I recommend you check her out too! www.clairecoles.co.uk
Here are some examples of her work:
|These works based on girls link the most to my work for this workshop.|
|Her designs are also printed onto mugs and pocket mirrors. She also makes bird shaped brooches.|
|Her most famous designs include birds and flowers.|
And my final piece...
