West Dean - Layered Textiles - Hot techniques for jewelled surfaces part 3
Painted and foiled Bondaweb with painted, textured and foiled Tyvek
The final day at West Dean was a day of layering and stitch, a great treat. Having the extra day made such a difference, to the work and to the group. All the students bar one were beginners in the Hot Textiles field and they all produced some brilliant work. We worked through all the basic Hot Textiles processes as you will see in the previous posts. The students were left with various piles of heat treated fabrics which I asked them to create some kind of composition - here are the resulting samples -
