Fabric Mountain

Always inspirational, often recycled and lovingly created

End of textile course exam work

My textile course neared the end in mid 2010 and exams followed months of experimenting with samples.

I chose to create a series of accessories which were a brooch, a neckpiece / collar and a wrist cuff.

This is some of the preparation work, woven strips of fabric.

I worked on the woven strips further and then produced some felted and embellished work as seen below.


Both these pieces eventually came together to form a wrist cuff and you can see the result here.

Other exam work included a fabric design featuring my pods and seed heads printed onto cotton and worked up into a purse.

I created the neckpiece using crochet as a technique and my brooch was a 3D poppy pod felted creation. The theme in all this was Rhythms and Cycles in Nature.necp2   exam2

I’m happy to say that I passed my exams.
