Plastics and Threads

UNCONVENTIONAL FABRICS USING THREAD

Using a water-soluble stabilising agent, we are able to create a textile with a mesh-like quality. We start by arranging items (threads or cloths) within our stabilising agent, then pinning them down and sewing through the agent both horizontally and vertically.

We finish by dissolving the agent in water, and drying what’s left on a mould of the form that we’d like it to take shape in.

PLASTIC FUSING

Plastics melt! Therefore, it is easy to combine them by simply ironing layers of thin plastics under a sheet of baking paper (so as to keep your iron and ironing board safe). One could even create patterns or graphics by combining different typer and colour of plastics together in a deliberate manner. Here I’ve created one reminiscent of fire.
