Textile Design Short Course (#19) – Tomomi W

Textile Design blog Textile design lessons started this week. The teacher is Ms. Gioia, who also taught us in the painting course. The brush strokes and other techniques we have learned so far can be applied to textiles as well.

Textile Design blog First, we prepared white, light blue, red, and black fabric scraps and compared the differences in the appearance of the colors of the fabric inks. We also found that once we painted white as a base, we could see the colors clearly by placing the color on top of the white. Then we drew a circle in white and practiced drawing on it.

Textile Design blog I drew four circles and would like to tell a story about them.
1) An Italian Gelato store was opened in Antarctica.

1) イタリアンジェラートの店が南極にできました。
Textile Design blog 2) Penguins heard a rumor and decided to buy it.

2) 噂を聞きつけたペンギンが買ってみることにしました。
Textile Design blog 3) Penguin was surprised at how delicious it was…
4) (The fourth picture is not drawn yet. I haven’t decided yet whether he dropped it or his body color changed to ice cream color. LOL)

3) あまりの美味しさに驚いたペンギンは…
4) (4枚目はまだ描いていません。落としたか、身体の色がアイス色に変化したか、まだ決めていません。笑)
Textile Design blog After the lesson, of course we went for gelato.

Textile Design blog On the weekend we went to Viareggio to watch the carnival.

Textile Design blog There were many people dressed up in costumes, and I also wore a muscella and asked some people for a picture.

Textile Design blog I was lifted up for some reason.

Textile Design blog It was the first time for me to see a carnival up close, but it was very powerful and interesting.
