How can form be generated from a flat woven surface?
Woven Forms brings the craft of weaving into the third dimension. It shows the development of fully-woven sculptural textile-forms created on a Jacquard loom. These abstract objects were achieved by embedding form-giving mechanisms, such as multi-layering techniques and heat-reactive shrinking yarn. Sewing was not needed to create these woven objects. Different expressions were developed focusing on color and texture influencing the form outcomes.
This project was awarded the Textile Design Award 2022 by Kasthall and Best Concept Award by Home of Textiles Scandinavia.
