Preparing for Construction

Among the many areas we explore in depth :colour,drawing,pattern,digital,design,embroidery,print,etc, etc…one of the most exciting is construction.

It is during this time that the student designers who enjoy ‘making’ the most come into their own.
Exploring and experimenting with methods of manipulations and 3D construction,they reinvent through use of contemporary materials, techniques and colour new ways in which to express their ideas for fashion and interiors.

I called in at the Pitt Rivers Museum in Oxford yesterday to reacquaint myself with the collections and to see how we could make use of their expertise.

Fingers crossed.
