The Textiles assessments were under way this week, we had to create a space to display our work and samples from our material Matters module. Included was our sketchbooks, presentation boards, life drawings,photoshopped images and fabric and knit samples that we did in semester 1. It was surprising to see all of our work I had accumulated over a few months, looking around the studio everyone’s work was amazingly presented and looked professional. I found the first semester of second year fun, it was exciting to learn new methods of transferring our designs into textile forms. I still need loads of practise as I had a few hiccups with print, for example when in the dye lab I forgot a key ingredient which caused my half an hour of stirring over a stove to become irrelevant when the dye washed straight our of the fabric! Or in the print room when my colours were so light they could barely been seen, when knitting my fabric sample fell off the entire machine… three times! But I have learned from these mistakes (hopefully) and will take my experiences into semester 2, bring it on!
