A-level Textiles Sketchbook - observational drawings of shells & stitched illustrations exploring line & colour; art portfolio
Mixed media sketchbook pages explore a wide range of tactile surfaces and structures. The properties of threads and fabric are investigated thoroughly, using a range of mediums and techniques, resulting in rich, exciting pages. Small, tidy annotation surrounds the pieces, providing thorough analysis without causing distraction from the work itself. - See more at: http://www.studentartguide.com/articles/fashion-design-sketchbooks#sthash.7Fzuot6D.dpuf
Fashion Sketchbook - the creative process of developing a collection; design ideas & fabric sampling
Original pinner sez: These sketchbook pages are the unequivocal result of effort, passion and enthusiasm. Although 'decoration' is usually unnecessary within a textile or fashion design sketchbook, in this case, the background patterning demonstrates a complete understanding of the aesthetic; a strong personal response to the colours, shapes, textures, lines and forms of the work studied.
Helima Akhtar - Textiles coursework - "As artists we should embrace the sensuous experience, especially within the context of research in textiles. It is not only about how things look but also the way they feel, smell, sit or can be handled."
