The aim for my project is to create a memorial for my Grandma. She was a very big part of my life and I want to celebrate the woman she was and the things she taught me. I feel for the majority of time I knew her, I took her for granted and only really realised how much she meant to me after she was gone. I would like this memorial to demonstrate to her, how thankful I am and hope to make her proud.
I am going to create a sketchbook that explores the different aspects of her life, but also conveys my personal journey of finding out who my Grandma was. I shall use photographs, letters and mementos to do so. I hope to create a development from my sketchbook and would like to create a replica of her wedding dress. I hope to include different fabric and sewing techniques in order for the dress to convey my Grandma successfully.
