Under her label Kopou, textile artist Kamalakshi creates fabrics using different surface design techniques . Intrinsic to her textile designs are the use of blocks which she creates herself using   rubber, wood,foam and other recycled materials . These are sometimes further layered with one or more techniques like  shibori ,screen printing and hand painting before being made into individual pieces of clothing and linen.Continuous experimentation and play with colours,textures and motifs characterize her work which is created on cotton, silk and linen fabrics.

At 10 AM, Kamalakshi will do a block printing demo:

The swaping will last from 10:00 AM to 8:00 PM to give a chance to anyone to pop up.

PATTERN MAGIC

Pattern making is to cut and join flat pieces of fabric to assemble into a 3 dimensional garment.

Take the pieces of a 3 dimensional garment apart and flatten them, to get individual pattern pieces.

The relation between the flat pattern pieces and the 3 dimensional structure of the garment never changes.

You can create a garment by cutting, moving and reassembling the pieces of a pattern, just like the pieces of a puzzle.

Use your original designs to make new patterns.

Starting with BUILDING YOUR OWN BASE and building the Tomoko Nakamichi Bamboo shoot top.
