Surface Design – Combination Silk Screening with Embellishment

15 December, 2011

Final projects for the semester are complete and we can all relax for three glorious weeks!

Here are some pictures from our presentation day in Surface Design class. The requirements of this project were to combine the silkscreening techniques we learned this semester with surface embellishment techniques, such as shibori, embroidery, and applique.

A wide range of projects were presented, from cool wearables including a rockin’ bikini, stylin’ tank tops and innovative detachable sleeves to fabulous wall hangings, yardage, and pillows…and of course an exceptionally adorable owl named Percy.
