BA6 - Wildflower Project

Tuesday, 18 March 2014

For my final project of Year 2 I am looking at Wild Flowers native to Norfolk. I am taking shape , form and line from the flowers themselves then reinventing them in 'wild ' colours for my collection of interiors fabrics for domestic cushions and curtains.
My brief is highly influenced by my work placement I did with Sarah Hardaker who creates exquisite floral fabrics for interiors on to Scottish woven linens. So I will be experimenting with linen and how I could use this for my project. 
Sarah also creates a lot of her work by hand so I will be concentrating on hand rendered techniques through my practice from research to final outcomes.
I am not a fan of the standard roses and pretty flowery florals . They are over done and boring so I need to create a fresh approach to the floral print. Using wildflowers will provide me with interesting line qualities and shape to form delicate motifs that I can jazz up with wild selection of colours.
