Handmade Printing Textile- Egyptian Art

Collection of Handmade Printing Inspired by Egyptian Art, 2007

For this project I had to choose a specific inspiration to develop four different handmade printing techniques with their respective variety of fabrics and colours. A major source of inspiration came from Ancient Egyptian Art: Hieroglyphics, sculptures and engravings. In order to match to the Egyptian traditions, I decided to use fabrics related to this culture: natural fibers such as cotton, linen, silk and organza.

The techniques developed were: printing by handmade stamps, crackle wax, stencil on a screen and tie-dye. Every single technique was developed in 3 different designs with 3 varieties of colour each.
