Following the Leeds Artist Bookfair I was interested in some of the more complex origami folded and unusual books. The personality of the user of the book can be represented in its making and this can be translated into sketchbook use. Slightly along these lines is this collage by Peter Clark. The delicacy of folded paper replicates the folds of the dress, beautiful.
My design journey began with Printed Textiles, exploring surface pattern design. Following from this I developed an interest in the concept of textile sustainability and recycling. I have recently completed my MA study exploring how historic textile processes can benefit our future through sustainable design. I am training to be a teacher in Art and Design to share my knowledge and fulfil the concept of living arts. This blog aims to explore what inspires me and to encourage my development as a practioner.
