Hi guys! I just thought I'd let you know that my work is being exhibited right now in Manchester, Uk. You can find details of how to get there here http://www.artdes.mmu.ac.uk/degreeshow/ and I'm on the Interactive Art's course.
There was a post a couple of weeks ago here by another person who found out about my project, but there were no images included. You can get to the website that I made for the project http://www.finestimaginary.com/unglefor and see loads and read about it, but here's some other photos from the exhibition!
The project involves a range of screen-printed t-shirts that you can cut out and make a creature from. The creatures are called ungleforians and are from the forest of Unglefor The project also involved the website and a set of screen printed hand-bound books! Please check out the website for more images and information
http://www.fairystars.co.uk was my old domain, before I got finestimaginary.com. Yesterday I overhauled and turned fairystars into my craft-dump blog, a place for everything that doesn't fit onto finestimaginary (which is a more professional portfolio, and store website). I really want ideas for links and stuff for fairystars now, any ideas? Take a look at the links I have already =) If you have a nice webstore/craft site that you'd like linking, please let me know! We could do a link exchange?
Hi guys! I'm looking for names of any artists, exhibitions, or even events that have primarily involved scultures made of fabric/textiles.
Basically, for my degree show I'm having a make-believe forest that's made from canvas with occasional prints etc. I've love any artists that have made flowers/trees/plants out of fabric, knit, crochet or the like. Would love web links or even 'I remember this guy who did such and such with canvas/wool/cotton' cos even that would give me a starting point!
First working out of some creatures I'm making as part of a larger, installation style project. Looking at shapes and surface designs with these 3, I like the results so far! Any input would be excellent, though, suggestions?
I'm wanting to do some sculpture with canvas fabric, I've heard of starch spray but I don't think that will create the stiffness I need... I need to be able to fold/crease/roll and for the fabric to retain it's shape (maybe with a few stiches here and there, and invisible gluing). I've thought about using glue to cover the fabric before using, but that would make it shiney...
Hey guys! I've been busy this week working on some designs for my up and coming store opening, These tiny owl guys will be available in different sizes and stuff. I've been working on smaller ones, hopefully keyrings, this week!
made from random fabrics, with felt details. And thanks to those who informed me of ladder stitch!!!
I've also been making some tiny pumpkin's for a few halloween swaps that i'm working on...
Ah! I'm posting all over the place today, anyway, this image was created in photoshop but I wanted to make an embossed piece with the image. I printed the image out, and used that a refernce when transferring it to thin copper... Here're the results!
It's a lovely process and gives great results! unfortunately, the copper isn't the cheapest thing to come by in craft stores >.<
Oh, and I made an embossed crown repeated image,too! Again, used an image I created in photoshop and printed out for refernce when embossing...
Hi guys! I'm pretty new here so i'm basically just posting a few past projects of mine! This project was part of my second year degree work, I was working with a vector image I'd created. I've printed this image on various media, including t-shirts, the work below however is what I made for my course...
Printed onto a shiny surface paper. Unfortunately the screen started to bleed etc. I have a new screen now with better quality fabric...
A close up!
And printing on a different paper... I love how this turned out, actually!
