I am posting a few images that i have gained inspiration from for my minor project. I am going along the lines of militaria and went to DLI museum at the weekend to get some photos for my project. Although the DLI is only a small museum I gleened a mass of imagery from it and was pleasantly suprised by it too!
I am wanting to do fashion accessories for the project rather than garment shapes hence the pic with the beautifully embroidered broaches and bracelet which I found at I had a quick trip to Newcastle yesterday and managed to get me some supplies which I hope will be of use for this project even if I just use them as samples.
Im hoping to get a crack on with some drawings tomorrow and then I will feel at least I am getting somewhere.
byes for now x

well I am trying to figure out how to do things on this blog!!! I think I might try and upload a few images over the weekend. I will get some photos of our studio at uni and maybe one of my own bay, we will see.

so here we are

So this is my very first blog. We have been asked to set up a blog for part of part of my Professional Development on my uni course.

I am studying Textiles and Surface Design at Cleveland College of Art and Design. I am starting my third and final year. This is my first week back and I have begun my minor project which is a 10 week brief and hopefully over the next coming weeks I will add pictures of how I am doing!!! My theme is based around WWII and could possibly evolve along the way - we shall see.
