Weaving

Due to the fact that I have been trying to push myself into experimenting with new processes during my final major project I decided to create some hand weaves basing the colours on a subject of marine life..

In this case I chose to focus on sea weed and chose a selection of yarns that were each a different shade of green, I considered all the different qualities of each yarn such as the variety of thicknesses and whilst I was creating the yarn I wanted the colours to flow into one another therefore I was very careful with my selection.

I want to create some more weaves within this project that focus on different aspects of marine life, therefore, I have been considering which have interesting qualities and colours, such as jelly fish and star fish. Furthermore, I think the use of different materials like recycled plastic bags could also be used within my weaves to create some different textures and possibly tie in the themes of pollution.
