The Future of Textiles: Innovative and Conceptual

March 4, 2019

I am delighted to be participating in the second of the 62 Group’s annual lectures at the Fashion and Textile Museum in London, alongside fellow member Catherine Dormor.
Print is often perceived as a quick process due to the potential for repetition that screen-printing allows; indeed, it is often possible to see how many screens were required, simply by counting the number of colours. My aim is to use this medium to create textiles that achieve a greater visual depth, through a painstaking and labour-intensive methodology. In From Essence to Substance – Creating Depth in Print, I will explore the use of photographic images and how their translation through the medium of screen-printing can be pushed to create something that appears much more than a photograph whilst retaining the integrity and intensity of their original spirit.
