In this project my inspiration was Islamic Art and tiles. It began when I looked at photographs online on the Leighton House Museum website, showcasing Islamic tiles and mosaics. When I visited the V&A, I discovered more Islamic Art, which I then went onto do more in-depth research on. When looking at the tiles, I was most intrigued by the florals and textures of the tiles. I then began working and experimenting with flowers, combining my ideas together to create samples. Here are my final samples, showcasing different materials, techniques and processes. I used a range of different fabrics, such as PVS. I also used different techniques, for example using the embellisher to create my own fabric, beading, using the Princess Pleater to create pleats then hand embroidering on top and many more. Overall, I feel these materials, techniques and processes all worked very well and I am pleased with my final outcome.
