Scarf made of white wool knit and golden glitter thread.
The patterns on it consist of wavy lines and almost like drawings. The overall effect is lace like, taking inspiration from the revival of lace and netting on clothing.
The popularity of wool throughout the autumn and winter has been really important in getting me to see this material in a contemporary light. Mixing coloured wools with glittering threads and beautifully designed knits has been a key textile popular trend.
My first white woollen scarf in years. A birthday present that is still in pretty good nick.
Experimenting with paint and ink used in a print type method.
A plastic surface is used, where watered down paint and ink are applied in areas and then a piece of canvas (any material can be used though) is pressed on over the top of the plastic surface. This is then peeled away to reveal print.
The black and yellow work quite well together, becoming a kind of mossy green in parts. Worth trying this out again.
