How to print textures

When is a texture a pattern and vice versa? In my latest gelli printing video I play around with printing textures onto cloth. I spent a lot of time mucking around with a piece of ratty old hessian I found in our garden shed, which only goes to show that it doesn’t take a lot to amuse an artist.

Fun with hessian!

Here is the short promo I did for the longer video.

Never a dull moment!
