A selection of vibrant printed fabric samples on light satin, giving the design a beautiful shimmer and shine. These fabrics were carefully made using a range of different printing methods such as screen printing and heat press.
A collection of woven fabric samples inspired by the Medicine Man exhibition at the Wellcome Collection and the Kurmi Market of Kano, Nigeria. The idea is to combine a collection of objects which have both aesthetic and personal value. I have carefully selected a variety of textured materials both found and specially crafted in order to give the fabrics the look and feel of the environments in which they were inspired.
The warp threads and yarns were hand dyed to get the perfect shade of colour, staying true to my research of the vibrant Kurmi Market. The yarns on the weft of the weave were selected to match the mood of the setting in the Medicine Man Exhibition.
