School of Design Course of Integrated Design Studies In the school I replicated wallpapers of William Morris by woodcut printing to learn construction of the patterns and how to create them.Using that way I created my own wallpaper called “Kitaguni No Kabegamimoyou(Pattern on wallpaper from Northern country)”Afterwards She started to create fabric because She think it is closer to our or daily life.
