In order to think about mark making I revisited some of my textile module, when I had explored lots of different ways of making marks.
I reminded myself of the aspects of mark making that I had found very satisfying, this could be categorised as
- marks with bleach
- marks made by stains
- marks made by rubbings
- marks made by coptic markers on material, involving bleed through.
- marks made by printing.
- using stitch to make marks
I explored marks with pencils and other mediums and on different surfaces
One consistent finding was to always look at the reverse side as I often preferred that to the front.
