TextilesTubes : Samples made into tube shapes
Creating structures with TextileTubes
Threading together tubes to create a geometric structure was just like making my beaded jewellery, but on a much larger scale.
This technique work for any kind of structure or shape.
Geo Chair base
Again using the technique to make a flat geometric triangular structure, then curving it against the form of a chair.
What I later realised, is that I could stiffen the structure with the same bioplastic recipe and although the geometric pattern would be obscured, it could act as an interal structure to a form.I later used this concept in my final piece.
