2 colour block print; printed with solvent-free ink on reactive dyed linen with a concealed black zipper.

This pattern takes a side step from traditional block printing—replacing the print block with a custom made wooden sandal and walking the design across the fabric. Ink is transferred to the cloth using body weight rather than the conventional mallet.

This pattern is made by performing a short choreography across a length of fabric wearing purpose made print-block shoes. The design was developed in response to a recently closed textile factory in North London as part of a project by AIR. The motif references a pattern manual used to program one of the factory’s colossal quilting machines. Click here to see more images from the project.

The motifs are objects collected from the bottom of a local pool during my weekly swim. Images of the artwork can be seen here.

wallpaper

3 colour surflex print; roll size 52 × 1000cm

This pattern uses registration marks from a William Morris block-printed wallpaper 'Pink & Rose' in the Anstey Wallpaper Company archive. The minimal design inverts traditionally ornate wallpaper patterns and reveals only these working marks usually cut off. Its surface-printed technique also echoes the style of old block prints. An associated print edition can be seen here. The wallpaper is available from commonroom.co
