I recently spent a happy couple of hours snipping samples of my fabric stash, which I’d sorted by colour in preparation for some collage exercises in my OCA Textiles 1 course. It reminded me why I love fabric as a medium. Partly the textures, the combination of warp and weft, its weight (or lightness), the way its colours and patterns work. And partly the associations and meanings that come with it, personal, historical and cultural nuances that enrich each tiny snippet beyond its visual and tactile qualities.
