Finally finished my City and Guilds Level 2 and was fortunate enough to get a distinction with my final project being my large coral reef picture. It turned out to be more purple than I imagined with more of the mount showing than I wanted but I like purple so no harm done. There are many techniques used including heating lots of chiffon, Tyvek, Lutradur and 3D medium with a heat gun as well as hand stitching and beading. I have extended this work into different colours mounted on a canvas.
A journey that begins with first-hand observation and ends with complex, three-dimensional pieces, Halima’s AS and A2 Textile projects are superb exemplars for others: some of the best Textile sketchbooks that I have seen.
