Foundation Art and Design – Fashion and Textiles | Year 1
Stars of The Past
Developing an Art and Design practice is what helps to define the artist and designer. In the art world and the creative industries, artists and designers will often pursue individual concepts and themes, which come about through a series of proposals to organisations and pitches to clients. Sometimes this will be for a one-off project (together with its own restrictions - such as time, materials etc.) whilst for others their projects could last up to decades, in a state of continuous development and flux...
I wanted to create a piece that showcased both my love for the stars and mythology. My goal was to counteract the old-fashioned ideology that textile craftsmanship is merely “woman’s work” by incorporating a display of embroidery, beading, quilting and crochet into the ancient male-dominated world of astronomy.
