I entered the Bradford Textiles Society Competition where I produced a collection of print designs which were inspired by an antique book and memoirs of an Aberdeen Military Sergeant in the 1800's. For my designs I used innovative techniques, and methods but in a traditional style.
I was ecstatic to receve a letter saying I'VE WON 1st Place & have been invited to their Award Ceremony and conference down in Bradford on May 2nd 2012 AND a generous cash prize - Just a few days before my 21st Birthday.
My print designs used his text, maps, hand writing, and photos to create a range of printed fabrics. You can see the full range of my designs in my blog post from October here.
For my entry to the Bradford Textiles Society, I began with my print design of the Sergeants hand writing, which I had created, developed and transferred into a digital format to be laser cut. Once the Leather was laser cut I printed a layer of Gold binder which added dimension to my fabric, seen below.

I am so pleased my designs were successful and to be part of this historic Society - The oldest textiles society in the UK. I have only the basic info at the moment but will be sure to put more info up and I find out more...
