Starting points for some aspects of the research around a lecture I'm going to give to nuca students include exploring the meaning of smocks through time – agricultural labourer to bohemian crafts person – this will include an overtly political position around workers and decoration - the image of a smocked William Morris needs to be considered within this section. While developing my smocking skills I've also become interested in the diagrams that are used to communicate practical aspects of making/smocking – how to communicated a 3D time-based activity in a 2D format.
