Unravelling the Manor
March 4, 2010
I’m working this month on completing the animated wallpaper design for Preston Manor as part of the Unravelling the Manor project which opens in May. I’m screenprinting a design based on the 13 servants who worked at the house during the early 1900s. An element of this design will be animated – i’ll post a clip of this in situ this at the end of the month when it’s finished … if it works!
So far, i’ve been reading lots about life as an Edwardian servant, drawing monotypes of the repetitive tasks of the maids, cutting silhouette servants that can be moved and trying to be patient with stop motion animation…
