Yes, we started our first People's Print Project at the V&A yesterday, 9 enthusiastic participants all from interesting background sharing a love of pattern and social textiles. Emma set the scene with a inspiring introduction into the Post Modernism movement and its significance and I delivered a tool box on how to create a Post Modernist textile collection using hand and digital methods of design. Focusing on Memphis textile designer Nathalie Du Pasquier we look at ways to create high energetic graphic patterns beginning with simple collage and drawn techniques.
Key words: 'Less is boring', energetic, kinetic, witty, playful, ironic, electric, spontaneous.
The People's Print devise pioneering workshops which look at design theory in parallel with a hands on and practical approach to create textiles design using traditional and digital techniques. Referencing historic movements, culture, heritage, current practices with new technologies and localised industry that foster sustainability.
The People's Print offers a toolbox to empower the participant and consumer to be at the center of the design process. Focusing on Digital Textile Design and Print for production.
