New experiments in progress looking at transformation of materials, using the spirit of materials related to a particular place, aiming towards a set of samples of my own “hand-made fabric”. I think this is a nice extension from the handmade silk paper experiments. I know I can make and use the silk the paper now, I don’t want to make any more samples until I have better idea for what to do with it.
Hand-spinning paper yarn using Shifu technique, from abandoned copies of the Evening Standard and my collection of vintage maps.
Rust-dyeing, from MADM studio leftovers (thanks to Nathan)
Focussing on the processes for now, I will consider the context for the forms I will make with this stuff later.
