Manipulating ‘Cloth’

In order to think outside the box a little more, I decided to make a list of various ways I could manipulate cloth or fabric. Here’s the list I came up with:

  • Stitching  – hand and machine
  • Ripping/Tearing
  • Folding
  • Patchwork
  • Burning
  • Scrunching
  • Wetting
  • Applying various art mediums/agents such as liquid latex and plaster of paris
  • Weaving (cut strips)
  • Freezing
  • Bleaching
  • Melting
  • Embellishing
  • Embroidering
  • Printing on it/iron on transfer
  • Staining it
  • Draping

I will be carrying out some sketches/studies and some experiments on how some of these techniques will look.
