I spent the whole weekend sketching and trying to find some inspiration for my studio work. I usually use Instagram to look at what is happening in the world. Personally, I find it a good platform to share ideas worldwide in form of photos or videos.
I do not have a business account yet, but I’m planning to create one as soon as I make some samples.
Today I focused my attention on 3D hand-woven textile.
I wanted to know how to incorporate yarns of different thickness in the same fabric. I extended my research to the different effects that can be achieved with yarns.
Here are some pictures of what I found.
I would like to try out some of this designs and see how to combine them with the landscapes/pictures I have been looking at for inspiration. The plurality of braids in the second sample reminds me of some of the sea-life pictures I collected in my visual folder.
As for the colors, I will focus more on pale tones (a white scale, still undecided whether to add some brighter colors or not).
