Formative Feedback – ATV – Assignment 4

Lovely Rebecca, it’s taken me ages to get this assignment completed and sent off and then like a dream she has reviewed it and sent me some interesting and informative feedback. I am absolutely determined to meet the deadline she has set me for the next assignment. I am, I know this is me, but…

ATV – Assignment 4 – Written Reflection

What a huge relief, it’s been posted. The assignment has gone, its long overdue and I had to sprint to the end but it’s done. Now for a little bit of reflection, what have I learnt? I’ve learnt that great ideas don’t always bring great results and focusing and narrowing down my choices helps to…

Collage Inspired Yarn – Ex4.5 – the yarns

If every excercise in Part 4 had been as much fun and as quick to do as this I would have been finished a lot earlier, but that could just be because of my change in attitude. I started by going back to the beginning, I wanted to try out the dip dye technique again,…

Collage Inspired Yarn – Ex 4.5 – Planning

I’ve been looking forward to this exercise right from the beginning and it’s been fun. I usually start most exercises with a bit of a brain dump and this one hasn’t be any different. I looked back at the collage work that I had done during Colour Studies and picked out some of the main…

Deconstructing Colour as Yarn – Ex4.4 – Focus?

Before I show you what I have done to finish this exercise I’m going to quickly mention ‘focus’. This is another of my weak points, I find it very difficult to focus and to work within self made constraints. Today I received another reminder for the submission of Assignment 4. I really am so far…

Exercise 4.3 – Reflective Commentary

For this exercise I have decided to answer the questions in the brief. 1. How did you build from your successes? Despite working through this exercise in a liner fashion my development of ideas has been very jumbled. In places I have ignored what I had previously done as I went onto the next bit….

Exercise 4.3 – using more unusual materials.

Whilst I was happy with the crochet samples I still felt they weren’t as inventive as they could be so I decided to include some unusual materials in the knitting samples.  I started very simply by including some merino fibre tops and knitting through it with mohair threads using a variety of needle widths. The…

Let’s Play!!

I’ve decided that I’m not satisfied with the samples I’ve made for Ex4.3 so I’m going to have a play.  This is my colour scheme source.   So I’ve collected a load of yarns in the similar colours, I’ve used most of the specific yarns up with the unsatisfactory samples. My plan is to…

Re-interpret, re-invent. Design and Planning

Although this exercise called for the use of the colour wraps from Part 3 I wasn’t quite sure how to start this exercise so I decided to gather some ideas together about the colour wraps and do a review of what I had done so far in my sketchbook. As I reached the end of…
