Week 01: Plus
Starting motif for this first project was a simple plus sign. I´ve wanted to create a plus pattern ever since I saw one on a painting in an Istanbul church. First step: Creating a repeat. In this case: a block repeat . Choosing the color was quite easy: Black is a classic.
The pattern was produced in our school´s screenprinting workshop, where we have an 8m screenprinting table. Unfortunately it didn´t work. So I only printed 4 metres on a smaller table. Silkscreen size: Approximately 60 x 140cm.
Before sewing the bags the fabric was coated with odicoat. It creates an oil cloth feel and makes the fabric water restistant. The gel is supereasy to use!
