|My design featuring my drawings of ammonites|
I discovered that GoodWeave is a international organisation working to end child labour in the rug industry of South Asia. It funds education and rehabilitation for thousands of rescued children.
Fired up by this cause I set about designing a rug to fit in with my Fossil Collection, so that I can submit it as part of my FMP. They provided a mood board and a colour palette from which you could select a maximum of 8 colours. That had to include any shades as another colour so I chose 7 of them to colour my line drawings of ammonites. Then I did a background with some of the colours using another drawing of a trilobite (I couldn't resist doing something in repeat!).
The lucky winner gets to have their design made up in a 200cmx140cm rug + £300 so fingers crossed!
