Hi, my name is Bliss Huthart and I am a student at Newcastle college doing a foundation degree in textile and surface design. And we are now doing a project where we have been manipulating fabric. It has been interesting and I have learned a lot of new and interesting techniques. I seem to enjoy stitching and manipulating fabric a lot. I really like to make everything look pretty by stitching sequins and beads onto things. But one of my favourite projects was a Bloom project where we had to draw real life flowers in lots of different styles. Then we eventually turned some of our observational drawings into motifs and surface design patterns. I really enjoyed creating motifs and patterns in different ways. We learned how to do things like "Mirrow Repeats", "Vertical Step Repeats", and a lot more!
