Textile work by Glasgow School of Art students and staff, including examples of woven textiles, some of which are most likely to be submissions for degree shows, while others seem to be submissions for an RSA Bursary Competition. Some creators are known, others are yet to be identified.
Single-faced neatly woven fabric in shades of light gold, sand, grey and teal. Occasional mercerised light gold warp yarns give the fabric a slight lustre and twisted two colour yarn also introduced to contribute to pattern.
Sample woven with cotton threads and long-haired mohair-like yarn in shades of yellow and green that form a design of bands. On the face side some of the long-haired yellow yarn has been pulled to create a pattern of serrated diagonals.
Plain weave sample woven with coarse woollen yarn in shades of grey, orange, and purple. Supplementary wefts of loosely spun thick woollen yarn in shades of purple, orange and cream is used to create a pattern of raised diagonal blocks.
Plain weave sample woven in shades of brown forming a design of puckered vertical bands and supplementary discontinuous wefts made of fabric ribbons in different colours. With loose supplementary warps and wefts in a variety of colours on the reverse.
Fabric development board with drawings, weaving grid, picture of a tapestry showing the inspiration, blue-green textile with orange, maroon and lilac spot design all mounted on card, entitled Hospitality Fabrics.
Double-faced fabric woven in four sections, with cream warp threads and stripes of beige, light brown, grey, blue, and pink yarns used in sections of the weft, creating a patchwork effect of striped and plain coloured blocks.
Double-faced weaving sample with a geometric design of repeating bands of chevron-like figures. Woven with cotton thread in shades of blue and purple with supplementary warps in bright orange shades forming the pattern. A label is attached to the item which reads 'Samanth Goates, 1990', however, this is a misattribution.
Double-faced, tightly woven sample with grid-like design of coloured squares arranged in bands on a black background. Woven in plain weave with yarn in shades of pink, purple, orange, blue, brown and black. This sample was entered by Alison Blair as her entry for the RSA's Industrial Design Bursaries Competition in Furnishing Textiles.
Single-faced loosely woven fabric in shades of dark pink (warp), grey, teal and lemon, with ribbons of pale blue, pale pink and black woolen yarn incorporated. The inclusion of thicker fabric ribbons adds texture and pattern to the fabric and a light stripe effect is created using the claret pink warp threads.
Single-faced tightly woven cotton fabric, predominantly cream, with warp central band and selvedges in dark blue. Zig-zag, audio graph style pattern of coloured bands and barcode style blocks of coloured plain weaving contrast with the cream background.
