Patternlog 02: Croome Court
My 'Patternlog' series continues as I make patterns inspired by the shapes, features and the atmosphere of a place. I have documented a visit to National Trust property, Croome, near the Malvern Hills in Worcestershire, UK. On the video below I show you what I saw in a freezing but beautiful Capability Brown landscape, and within the walls of Croome Court, a mid 18th-century mansion.
The video below may take a while to load... please be patient, it will appear.
Please excuse the variable sound as I flit between recording in parkland (where you hear the distant hum of the motorway), to recording after my visit. I think you can even gauge the temperature by my voice; I was shivering! I am learning as I go with this sort of way of sharing my work. My hope is I can give a bit of an insight into the process behind my patterns, whilst also exploring somewhere new and taking you with me. I really hope you enjoy this issue of Patternlog.
The Croome Court Patterns
A handprinted tablecloth; I am hoping to have these available to sell soon.
These fabrics are handprinted on organic bamboo fabric.
I am prototyping some handmade products made from these materials.
More on what these become, coming soon!
