Details found in photos of Kyoto were translated into drawings and collages with a focus on repeat pattern. This led to experimentation with folded and pleated papers, informed by lanterns and origami, to consider how patterns change when manipulated and folded. The textile outcomes include screen-printed cotton, combined with fabric manipulation techniques to create three-dimensional effects. These are complimented with samples of Katazome, a traditional Japanese resist-dyeing technique.
