I found this video via a ‘share’ on Facebook by a fellow textiles student. In this particular video, an ink that dries in such away that it can hold it’s own 3D structure is screen printed onto water soluble fabric. The print is heat cured with a heat gun and the dissolvable fabric gently washed away. A fantastic application of printing to textiles, actually making the fabric itself rather than surface design. Douglas has spent 6 months researching materials to get this right but it’s something to bear in mind and build on.
The video by the curators on this web page is also very good. It runs through all aspects of presenting art and design work in the exhibition, and struck me how much a piece can be affected by the way in which it is viewed.
