Final year project
The forgotten circus [Read more]
An overview of the fabrics in 'The Forgotten Circus' collection, including both screen and digital prints. The collection includes multiple surface textures ranging from a cotton satin to a chenille through to a duchess sateen and a velvet shimmer.
These geometric prints are co-ordinates for the main prints and the colours used bring a cohesion to the overall collection.
Collection close up
A close up image of 'The Clowns', 'Signs', 'Circus Geometric' and the wallpaper 'Circus Posters', all digitally printed.
Balancing trio wallpaper
'The Balancing Trio' is a 4 coloured screen printed wallpaper. The name was given because of the stacking of characters and animals that have been put into this print.
Final pyrography pieces
Stacie has experimented with the process of pyrography. It adds a unique addition to add to the collection. She has use recycled wood from a broken fence that she sanded down, cut and secured together to create the clown mural and used shelving donated to create the second piece.
Circus posters and carnival print
The 'Circus Posters' wallpaper represents the advertisement side of the circus and has been inspired by vintage posters. The fabric alongside the wallpaper is called the 'Carnival', this print brings the story outside of the circus tent and puts into perspective the whole circus and carnival setting.
This image is a close up of the 'Signs' print. The print has been digitally drawn based around typography on vintage circus posters and printed onto a velvet shimmer.
'The Acts' is a 4 layered screen print onto a cotton satin, this print represents the different acts that appeared in the 19th century circus.
Stacie is a textiles student specialising in print design. Throughout this project she has rediscovered the 19th century circus and carnival scene to create a cohesive interior collection for modern and eccentric hotels.
‘The Forgotten Circus’ is based on the rediscovering of the 19th century circus and carnivals and to bring them into the 21st. The concept has developed so much over time and this project goes back to where it all began, back to the Barnum and Bailey shows. This Spring/Summer 21 interior collection is based from the weird and wonderful aspects of the circus for a circus themed hotel targeted at adult families. Stacie has used both screen and digital prints for her collection as well as introducing the skill of pyrography to give that element of surprise within a room. After graduating Stacie is aspiring to go into a creative job role within the world of home and interiors.
