Bandana making

Students from Truro College Art & Design Saturday Club were set a 3 week project creating bandana’s that followed a garden inspired theme.
Week 1 – natural dyes and shibori techniques
Transforming plain cotton into vibrant, patterned fabric. Vegetables/matter that would normally be discarded in the compost heap were recycled ;  such as Red onions skins, cabbage and tea bags.
Week 2 – Leaf printing
Using leafs collected from students own gardens patterns were printed onto their pre dyed fabrics .
Week 3- Embroidered bugs
Small bugs and insects designed by students were brought to life as they experimented with machine and hand embroidery.

And here are the final results!
