Taking inspirations from the competition i have just finished, I moved my inspiration on and onto a dobby loom. Creating a warp designed of silk and wool bands, making the silk sections longer allowing me to experiment with the tension creating seersucker structure, keeping these samples very pale and just using flecks or bands of colour, and using different finishing effects.
I was one of three entered into a competition from my University year, where i had just under three weeks to create a project. I started of by creating drawings based around my own landscape views and markings i from from stones, using inks and dyes and developed these threw into Photoshop playing about with layers and then transferring these designs onto the Jacquard an experimented with different yarns and techniques, and then decided on an outcome for my design.

Taking colour reference from my drawings I started to create a colour way, producing a double cloth structure, using wool and silk yarns, dying up all my own colours, experimenting with different finishing effects to achieve different collapse effects.
