Introduction – Work in Progress

The intense smell of the ink is still in the air… Your pencil has just softly touched the paper. Your work is not yet finished, it’s still in progress; that special moment right before your artwork is completed. You can already imagine your final design...it’s almost there!

This is a creative invitation to all textile designers to leave your work in an aesthetically unfinished, incomplete state. Your work in progress is the final result. You are encouraged to leave space in your artwork so it looks perfectly unfinished, even though it’s nearing completion. Your design can combine hand-drawn elements with illustrated details and color highlights. Combine digital elements with sketches. Mash up botanical layers with floral arrangements. Your random splash of color is the DNA that keeps the design interesting and enchanting.

If you’re not a member of the Textile Orbit yet, apply now to submit your designs!

Be inspired by the previous textile design projects and see all the excellent designs that were created in Artificial GardenChinoiserie-Chic and in the first project in the Textile Orbit The Lacemaker!

Your task
