‘Birds of a feather'
A research theme based on the patterns and textures of all things bird like.

Module Four

This fourth Module explores a range of ideas, such as feathers, eggs, nests, flight: building on the student's work on pattern and textures in Module Two. The development of designs from the many aspects of the theme will help the student in their understanding of how an interesting piece of work is achieved.

The Module will cover ways of using resists, bleaching and colour discharge, and how these can be used to enhance backgrounds.

The theme is developed through the techniques of appliqué towards two resolved samples. One resolved sample will show use of soft edge appliqué, and one resolved sample the use of hard edge appliqué.

The types of dissolvable fabrics and their possibilities for bonding layers, trapping between layers and cutting through the layers will lead to a third resolved sample from this theme.
