This time last year, I already had my summer planned. I had resigned from my job and enrolled myself in summer school. June 2012 was gonna be a-rockin’ and a-rollin’ in Uppsala, Copenhagen, Berlin, London, and Paris. I was so ready to get my hands off the dreadful keyboard and dirty again, in Central Saint Martin’s textile design course.
You know how I feel about prints here, and that was about when I decided that textile design was the way to go. I put pencil to paper for the first time in a very long time, drew, painted, learnt heat transfer printing, played with the giant heat press (only about the best thing ever), did some dip dyeing, visited museums, created some devore, 3D manipulation, and almost contantly felt OMG there’s so much to learn and to be in awe of! Three weeks of school in London just whizzed by, I wish I had more time to see, more time to do and even had more homework.
I want to feel like I’m ready to learn, absorb some awesomeness all over again, and if I have the time – a quick revision of the stuff that went down in class. Meantime, some pictures:
See that crackled scar on my face between my eye and cheekbone? Berlin, I blame you.
