Well, I’m back at college for my second year of City & Guilds. I have had to miss several sessions due to holidays and then illness, and it kind of gets me out of the ‘zone’ as it were. Consequently, I am struggling a bit with getting my ideas to formulate some sort of plan.
I have started with an aim to do something around a wedding veil – a golden wedding veil.
Not just from the royal wedding of earlier this year, but also a very lovely friend of ours was married in May and a beautiful cousin was married in July. Hence, we were wedding-ed out. Then, I saw some veil samples and fell in love with one in a golden colour.
At the end of last term we had a workshop on layering and I did a piece that included a purple and yellow tartan, with words from Scottish wedding services, as well as the rings.
My sketchbook has since been full of experiments in the shape of netting and lace. I did start to go off on a tangent of oranges and reds when playing with colour, but need to come back to the purple and yellow, somehow.
