Making Portraits….

31/05/2011

by Holly Berry

Started planning and brainstorming on how I would like to communicate a portrait through textiles in a contemporary and interactive way. Through coding, weaving and individual characters from the alphabet, in colours to reflect the character of who I am within my craft. A portrait of the maker and of the material.

Portraits tell stories, textiles hold stories…. brainstorm on histories, personal and social heritage. Designing communications to tell and hold stories for the future. I want to explore the making, meanings and stories through making my ‘portrait’.

Lots of sampling, maths and experiments with many colours, yarns and proportions to come!
