"Art Cloth" experiments.

I am lucky to be a member of Weedon Bec Creative Textiles, a CQ regional group. At our last meeting, earlier this week we challenged ourselves to experiment with creating 5 "Art Cloths".
We started with five different pieces of hand dyed fabric and in small groups, worked , in turn, on each cloth to add surface pattern and texture with screen prints, Thermofax prints, stencils, block prints and rollers. We were allowed a maximum of twenty minutes working on each cloth.
Here are three examples of what we did.

Cloth 1

Cloth at the start

 After the first 20 mins.

 After second group had worked on it. 

 After third group had added their ideas

 After the fourth group finished. Finally those who had started off at stage one, returned to add any final details.

Cloth 2
Here is the same process for a seconds cloth.

Cloth Three.

The challenge, next month, is to create something with the piece of cloth we have each taken home with us! 
My piece Is now pinned to the wall while I consider how I may use it.

  1. They are fantastic! I love the idea of the cloth round robin with everyone having a hand in its decoration.
