Sue Dove's workshop at Summer School this year encouraged us to work freely with colour and random images to develop design inspiration. Spirals were an obvious choice of shape to include!
Various froms of printing, monoprinting and stencilling were incorporated into designs alongside cut-out montages of magazine images blended with bands of colour using wax pastels. I was very excited by the zigzag spiral.
A visit to the Zandra Rhodes exhibition in London unearthed an array of spiral design inspiration.

I was amazed to see that Zandra Rhodes had been inspired by my zigzag spiral from Summer School! lol!
