Making Investigations Toolkit No.3

We are pleased to be able to bring you the third of our Making Investigations toolkits, a series by artist Beth Hopkins that offer processes, ideas and techniques to support you in developing your art practice.

Making and thinking as processes are important in Beth’s work where materials and ideas are often explored together. This second edition of Making Investigations is all about binding, what the act of binding might mean and how an object or space changes once it is bound.

Toolkit No.3: Textiles

“What should a sculpture be made of? What happens when you move away from hard materials like metal, stone or wood to softer materials? Fabric can be stuffed, suspended, draped and sculpted. Twisting, gathering, knotting all become possible.”
