Here’s my collage of the fungi I’m using for a tapestry workshop on Saturday. Collage is a good way to introduce texture into your design process and starts to give you the feel of a textile.
Along with the colour and pencil textural studies, collage helps you to begin to feel closer to your design and ideas will now start to flow. I’m really feeling the double cloth pleats and the dyes used in the shibori ideas for my interiors and fashion fabrics.
A truly multi-layered design!
