LARGE TEXTILE WORK STARTED


Design work in progress,  48" X 48"  Lori LaBerge  2017

The urge to work on a larger piece hit me this week.


It started with four sketches done on our Maine vacation. They were photocopied at a smaller size and moved around on a larger piece of sketch paper until they worked as a grouping. The background was drawn in to create an off-center intersection using a continuation of lines in the four sketches. The piece is a combination of the road designs I've worked on and the new architectural works currently being hooked. 

Untitled design idea,  Lori LaBerge  2017

A photo was taken of the sketch and it was placed into Photoshop to work with colors and further design ideas. The plan is to add rebar to the left side of the hooked work along with a piece of wood to attach it to for hanging. This may end up being too much weight. If so, metal fencing or another material will be used.

Dye supplies were rounded up

Some of the colors ready to go.

Hooking was started in a 6-cut. Work will continue next week.
