Weaving has always appeared to me as one helluva big effort.. I also enjoy the way pigment inks can sit quietly proud of the cloth, showing off its woven properties a little more.  The best of both worlds. NousVous's second studio visit became a heady afternoon of applying drawings we had to hand, on a length of fabric resurrected from a sample pack that morning with the few coloured dyes that hadn't gone mouldy on closer inspection.  It's early days aesthetically but screening ink directly on to fabric allowed us to appreciate the options of working on a more malleable surface.  We're all keen to explore more.
