I walk past this item of clothing almost everyday and have always thought it and others like it to be the most beautiful things ever created. Unfortunately the way we have displayed it doesn't do it real justice as you can't really tell that it is totally transparent; being made of sea mammal intestines. My study for chapter 1 seems to be taking on a hole new level as i study these items so for now i am moving on to chapter 2 until i can see more items and file it all together (might end up being a book!)
so for now i am collecting together 'materials' that i have already got in my stash, are recycled, found or have been given to me. i am not going to buy anything for this module (if i can help it). it will be interesting to see how it works.
(i was very proud of my self at The Knitting and Stitching show' to come away with only 2 small reels of thread from the Handweavers studio and Alice Kettle and Jane Mckeating's new book 'Hand stitching'). and then onto the highlight of my day to the V&A to see Arthur Bispo do Rosario's work, a fascinating 'outsider'.
