In the class that I am taking, our latest project revolves around heat setting.
Heat setting is basically taking a synthetic fabric, in this case polyester organza, and binding it in different ways. In this case, I am wrapping the fabric and binding it around nails. It then gets put under the heat setting machine (a heat lamp with a fan) and after about an hour, the fabric melts a tiny bit and when it cools off, it is the shape of whatever you bound it around.
My idea is to make spiky fabric and try and recreate something that looks like a piece of pollen.
We will see how successful this will turn out later.
And a farm up date....
The old structure has been torn off and disposed of.
Last I heard, the engineer is drawing up plans for a new barn and the farmers in the area want to have a barn raising when all of the paperwork is done.
I'm sure that Mamoo will update you with any new information.
