RSA Project & Charity Shop Materials

7 Jan

Recently I have been trying to juggle numerous tasks, some of which are family and work orientated, others relate to university work. I have managed to do a few drawings and a little research for the RSA brief entitled ‘Make Something Disappear’. I plan to use recycled materials where possible when producing samples for this project and will therefore have this in mind throughout the design process. After scouring the charity shops this week I came across some outdated maps, which I intend to use as a base for some collage and stitch, mixed media pieces. As well as this I bought a couple of jars of old buttons and some books, which will no doubt come in useful!

I also attempted to unravel an old hand knitted jumper this week, however the outcome was not entirely successful with much of the jumper made from small lengths of yarn knotted together. I hope I will still be able to produce some useful samples for this project with the recycled yarn. Below are some images I took whilst unravelling the jumper:
