Stage 3 – Printing & painting on fabric

I chose quite a wide range of different styles as I didn’t want to limit myself and wanted to be able to explore freely. I think I may have got a bit carried away and probably produced too many samples but it was great fun, again I had to draw a line and stop before I got too carried away and bogged down. Most were successful and I was really excited by some of the results!

Below are some pictures of my experiments:

About Julie Hooker

Having recently returned to my roots in Surrey, I am currently studying a BA Hons degree with the OCA. My work is often inspired by the local countryside in the beautiful Surrey Hills area and the wild rugged nature of the North Cornish coast. Steam engines and abandoned industrial history are also recent themes. A free machine embroiderer and felt maker; I like to explore the use of natural, found materials to create my art, whether that be as raw materials to stitch or weave with or as a material with which to produce dye or print with. Previously, I completed City and Guilds parts 1 & 2 Creative Embroidery at the East Berkshire College in Windsor in 2007. I was also awarded first place in the wearable art section of the National Quilt Championships 2008 and 2009 held annually at Sandown Park.
