Module four chapter 10

Chapter 10 book type structure to find out
the exercises for these chapter are to make several ‘mock-ups’ of structural forms to find out how they are constructed and to see how the embroidery techniques could be incorporated with in them. At least one surface has to have a major emphasis on embroidery as this Module deals with the embroidered panel Constructing books is a totally foreign profession to me . And so the tasks for the chapter have piled up as a mountain in front of me. For the beginning, I once again needed a kick up the backside of my girl friend. The result at least was the
simple book in one afternoon.
For the folding and stitching experiments, I limited myself to white copy paper as a material, which I painted with crayons and diluted Prociom MX. I used paper 80 for the text and for the book cover paper 160 The necessary accurate work to form a pretty text part , is not so much my thing . The small books show a more organic look. This also fits better to the irregular edges of the self-made paper. Of the folded parts I like the origami book with the pockets best. So I can incorporate my dipped and embroidered papers removable with the design of my book.

The first attemp with the origami fold. This is double sided with 4 pockets. I want to use fabric paper and this kind of folding will become to thick. Therefor I shall devided it in half.

the first page( back and front side) for my embroidered book . The theme: Module 4

By the work of this chapter  I see the the necessary of doing a mock up. And by the several experiments I had some understanding for constructing books
                  
        
                                                               
                                
                                                                 

Module four ch 8 and 9


Module four Chapter 8
Applay paper pulp to a woven fabric
For the pulp I used white tissue paper which I dyed one part with tea and and others
with procionMX


                                                                              picture 1
For this example I I placed my grid of linen scrims with withdrawn threads on a kitchen towl and pressed the the frame with the pulp over it. As the next step I formed a frame from pulp around the fabric

                                                                    picture 2
I tried to make a grid which has been created by laying loose threads in a grid formation onto a kitchen cloth. A freshly made sheet of paper was then laid on top. But the blue threads was to thick for embeding into the pulp. The next step, I tried to fix the thicker threads with a thin pulp layer. The flood of water from the cup makes the thread grid swim and destroyed the grid pattern.

                                                                  picture 3
this is the result of the 2nd experiment. I had colored the pulp a little and used the withdrawn threads for the grid pattern. The blue threads need to fix a 2nd thin pulp layer at the edge. Otherwise, I prefer the grid. I like the effect as the grid slowly developed out of the pulp from the edge and was seen in the center clearly.

                                                                     picture 4
  I wrapped the frame of the screen with wool and then scooped the paper

picture 5

                                                                      picture 6
For this experiment, I wrapped yarn  around a wooden frame, which I scooped in yellow pulp.The
pulp remains at the fringes of the thin yarn. The grid structure can only be guessed . After pressing the
grid stand out more clearly, but there are no perforations.

                                                                       picture 7
The next attempt I made the grid with the yarn and added machine embroidery. That worked fine now. I
like the irregular and involuntary resulting holes. It was a very fragile interesting object.

                                                                             picture 8
The bands of linen scrim’ and threads were pressed into a freshly made layer of paper and then secured with some additional layers of yellow and turquoise pulp laid across the bands. In this part, I have pressed the two layers. I think the result is not satisfactory. The object is too flat and I missed the structure. At the 2nd operation I will have to dry the area with the grid pattern without squeezing.

                                                                              picture 9
…. and that‘s is the result

                                                                          picture 10
                        I staples an nylon net orange bag to a wooden frame and used it as a squeeze

                                                                      picture 11
                                                            The same with a citrone net

                                                                                  picture 12
Weave threads from linen scrim have been withdrawn in both directions and a embroidery yarns has
been stitched in diagonal lines across the withdrawn area embedded between two layers of pulp

                                                                        picture 13
Also winding wire can be embedded in paper pulp. I am amazed at how beautiful the materials paper and
fabric can be combined and I love the opportunities to embed a variety of materials into pulp

Module four chapter 9
Stitchery into paper
The stitchery should echo some feature in my research theme of lettering and media patterns.
