new ways to patternmake :: Julian Roberts ‘Subtraction Cutting’
Timo Rissanen is my saviour. After contemplating not finishing my major work and running away to the lovely island of Bali, I took a breath, sat down and jumped onto Timo’s blog. Lucky for me Timo is one step ahead in the ways of new techniques. Unlucky for me he’s in New York. At least he can put his thoughts (and actions) to the lovely place we can all visit. The Internet.
SO after scrolling through, I saw his post on Julian Roberts patternmaking technique ‘Subtraction Cutting’, and got to see some lovely images of a course Timo took with Julian. I loved the idea and decided to explore. This led me to Julians’ website SUB_CUTS and eventually onto buying his ‘book’ (lets say it is a coil bound version of some digital website somewhere with mini hand drawings and explanations. None the less it’s the only way to learn without a face-to-face meeting).
And so my exploration began. And of course, I tried to experiment with Zero Fabric Waste Creation too. Why not hey?
Playing around with tunnels and holes and stitching the whole thing together… could be promising with some more experimentation. I’m wanting a more structured look (soft-structure) compared to the layers of draping that you get with this technique using jerseys.
