Being at Lewes College for 3 years definitely does psychological damage. (I’m kidding, I’ve just never been so bored of a place)
I finish college in about 5 weeks. I can’t wait to finish and finally have so much more spare time to be experimenting with art in the ways I actually want to instead of doing a project that has been changed so much by the course leader that it would be a lie to say it was my own project anymore…
I’m currently doing a project on African traditional fashion/textiles. I am in the process of designing and making an African traditional style dress with a modern twist at the moment; I have material actually from Africa that I bought when I was over there and I will be using that for the main part of my dress. I have also been screen printing onto material Buffalo heads to add onto my dress somewhere (possibly a belt?) - In Africa, they wear animals on their clothing to represent certain things - to keep away animals from their camp, or to give them courage etc. (the Buffalo represents strength).
I won’t blab on about it much more, I will upload some designs and photos soon.
