Project 6 – Manipulating fabric – Stage 1 Preparation


The course notes for this part advise laying out my fabric samples and organising them into colour groups.  The notes also say to cut a sample from each and pin them to my pinboard.  I have too much fabric to do this.  I have spent some time sorting out what I have and this amounts to a wall full of shelves stacked with old curtains, clothing, sheets and upholstery sample books; drawers full of smaller bundles of fabric and boxes containing smaller (but I think useful) scraps and trimmings:

The sheer quantity means I couldn’t possibly start cutting out samples and pinning them to a board.  I have therefore decided to move on to the next stage and go straight to looking at my sketchbook for some images to develop.

  1. You have even more fabric than me! I too have curtains, hand-me-down fabric, random charity shop purchases and bundles of scraps – glad to see other students are being realistic when it comes to these ‘preparation’ stages!
