Theme book work continues

I have been concentrating on trying to assemble some work in my theme book. The course book says to include visual information around your theme and to put anything that related to it in the book including drawings, colour studies, photographs, postcards, fabric or yarn samples.

I am reasonably pleased with how it is coming along but there is a long way to go! I started with a mind map to get done inspiration on where to head next. As you can see this in the picture below it is amazing where you end up. My favourite words that emerged were: weathered, rusty, precise, movement and lace


I have so far included copies of some of my sketchbook work to enable the assessors to find it easily, some photographs that I have taken of gears and some research on other designers whose work could relate to my theme.


I just hope I am heading in the right direction. I feel that I am a way behind where I should be at this point.


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.
