For my honours project, inspiration comes from personal photographs taken on a trip to Sukhumvit, Bangkok, Thailand, inspired by the colour and decoration found in the architecture. In the sketchbook, the photographs are studied and different sections are recreated using collage in hand-painted and textured papers, which explore the shapes and colours in a wide variety of different combinations, scales and patterns. The collages are then translated into weave using worsted wool and a range of different weave structures, to explore colour proportion and varied scale repeats in the warps to recreate the patterns from the visual work. The final fabric collection is a collection of colourful, patterned woven soft interior furnishings for S/S 21 for interiors.
