Shh, The Plants are Sleeping
The brief for this project was to create two co-ordinating wallpaper or wall coverings, one or more having to be textured. Designing from the given food trend, foraging, I took this concept and explored the magical world of foraging, a childlike activity, through a child's eyes. With names that sound other wordly and little universes to be found in each plant, I characterised some common foraged plants used in culinary arts to create a playfully illustrated wallpaper as an education resource for children. Selected areas have been textured using a flocking technique (a raised fuzzy surface) and heat press.
