First we set up our warp in order to weave samples. We all used a white cotton warp as this was what was set for the power loom which we will use to weave our final samples into lengths. I liked the colour that was created by using the woad leaves that had already been dyed, and felt they would look good against the blue.

After the warp was set up we created some peg plans which would be put into the loom in order to create a pattern. The image below shows the sample with a similar colour that the woad leaves created, along with varying shades of blue reflecting the colours created in the woad dye workshops.

COP (collaboration on patrol)

After looking at Police Uniform, we have moved onto a modern interpretation using Robocop and Judge Dredd! A combination of the weave, PVC, and leatherette will be the basis of our designs. Hopefully it won’t look like something from a 1970s porn film!
