woven forms

Students have studied how contemporary artists use woven forms to communicate meaning whilst referencing the culture in which they live. In response to our study of Aboriginal artists and artworks, students have designed and constructed a basket using wire jute and string. As an extension, students have woven thread into fabric using an embroidery needle. In this exercise, students experimented with stitching techniques, texture and composition.
