Students in Saturday class were asked to choose an artist as inspiration for designing an accessory and garment. Dahlia chose “Where The Wild Things Are” author and illustrator Maurice Sendak. She was primarily drawn to his depiction of leaves and vegetation.
From the same fabric (both in dimension and fabrication), and the same rules for construction come so many different designs. Hooray for variation, diverse concepts, and unique interpretation!
After each student completed their textile design they were given a garment building project with these perimeters.
1. Create a t-shirt/top/tunic.
2. Garment must have four holes, 2 of which need to be cut from fabric.
3. Garment must have at least 2 seams
4. Don’t rely on symmetry or the typical shape of a top when deciding upon hole placement.
