Nearly done – archive textiles sketchbook

Its taken a while but I’m almost there. Following on from the visit to the museum to observe 3 archive textile pieces I’ve been working on a sketchbook to record and capture the qualities of the 3 garments.

I made this sketchbook using a guide to Manchester I found in a hotel room, some pva glue and a load of torn papers.

  
Over the last few weeks I have filled it up with:

Line drawings    

 
Definition and detail records

  
Collages 

  

 
I couldn’t resist a little bit of stitch! 

 

So now nearly all the pages are full. There is very little writing so I am going to add more detail about my choices and methods.

  
And to finish it all off I’m going to decorate the cover with this wonderful piece of fabric given to me by a friend.
