Tapestry And Rug Knotted Weave For Interior Decoration Using The Theme Of Giraffe In Three Dimensional Form
CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION
- Background of study
Interior decoration is the beautification of the interior of a building, room, office, etc with regards to artistic effect. It is also the art of decorating a room so that it is attractive, easy to use and functions well with the existing architecture. The goal of this is to provide a certain feel for the room, and one of such is a tapestry weave using metal frame loom as an amateur.
Tapestry has been traced all the way back to the bronze age. Tapestries have been used for many end uses but the usage of tapestry on a metal frame loom to weave a three-dimensional work is not common.
Tapestry in the work of textile sculpture, especially using metal frame loom is not common. This metal frame loom is used to show the movement of the animal, the shapes and also brings out the beauty of the animal to make it look real. As the researcher has been able to weave directly on a metal frame loom and has been able to achieve a tapestry weave of a giraffe in three dimensions.
Statement of problem
Textile sculpture (three-dimensional) weaving achieved through the tapestry are not highly recognized.
Aims and Objectives
Using tapestry and rug knotted technique, to depict textile sculptures with the metal frame loom (three-dimensional) that can be used as a decorative piece.
To broaden the mind of designers on new methods they can achieve through exploring. To also show that tapestries can not only be used as wall hangings alone but can also serve as a means of a decorative piece.
Scope of Study
The study involves the use of a metal frame loom for weaving in the creation of textile sculpture in three-dimensional forms. It also involves the careful combination of tapestry and rug knot weave with the metal frame loom.
Significance of Study
Tapestry is mostly used as wall hangings but in this case of study, it is used as a textile sculpture in decorating a room, office for aesthetic and educational purpose. This project also makes the researcher self-employed having known the rudiments of tapestry making, thereby enhancing the growth of entrepreneurial skills the researcher has built on, and also greatly affecting the society.
