The Sampling Project, 2018.

Silk, cotton and mixed fibre textiles. Plant dye, print, devoré and stitch.



Inspired by archival research into katagami (Japanese dyeing stencils), Hannah devised a series of textile experiments that investigate different combinations of natural dyeing, printing and stitching using a wide variety of fabrics. The resulting samples not only demonstrate technical knowledge but also reflect cross-cultural influences and a deeper, intuitive visual ‘handwriting’ that is hard to define. ‘The Sampling Project’ is presented as a a series of textile fragments, archived and catalogued for future reference.
