Module SIX – Chapter 6 - CUTWORK


In this Chapter inspiration is taken from water or sky collaged designs from Chapter TWO and translated into fabric samples using a cutwork technique. Each cutwork sample is followed by a detailed view of an area.

SAMPLE ONE

Sample ONE 2








Water design


Background is dyed lining fabric with three layers of fabric. The dark “rocks” are reinforced with blocks of dense stitching.

  1. great work. sample three is especially effctive i feel.

    you mention acrylics. do you dye your own fabrics? may i ask what you use? i want to branch into dying/inking/colouring cloth some way, but can't decide what to use. dying seems so complicated from what i've seen.
