Explore basic pattern making techniques to design & create your own 3d textile sculpture. A perfect way to use recycled fabrics, exploring surface decoration, embroidery and both 2d and 3d embellishments.
Sally Huguenin has been a practising textile designer/ maker since the age of 6.
In recent years her textiles practise has focussed on jewellery & sculptural work, using recycled materials including recycled & vintage fabrics, remnants from past projects, and other reclaimed bits & pieces.
Sally has long enjoyed 3d textile sculpture, ever since fashioning her own replica “cabbage patch kid” from old stockings in primary school. Her sculptures now focus on capturing and amplifying the beauty of native Australian birds & marsupials. As with her jewellery pieces, the textile sculptures use surface design techniques including printing & embroidery on recycled fabrics, all painstakingly assembled by hand.
