THis is a Three week project in which we explore Pattern, through mark making and experimenting with fabric. we are expected to have a large body of work the 30th of march so better get designing..:)

Primary Source Images

These are were and what I looked at for inspiration. I began looking around my own house, my Nannas house and My college, I decide on the theme of  "Decay" focusing mainly on the decay and ageing of wood and wooden furniture. I then proceeded to taking rubbing's of objects around the college to see if I could get more Information on pattern in the urban and natural environment.
