Pieced from African fabrics including tie-dye and batik fabrics from Ghana and The Gambia with curved insert ‘gaps’ pieced from indigo and black waxprint . Other fabrics used were Kudinda Ndora Stripe, kola nut and indigo. The ‘Hand of Fatima’ door knockers and rivet patterns were printed from photographs using ink jet printer onto cotton or silk organza treated with ‘Bubble Jet Set’. Door knockers were hand painted with inktense pencils to match the surrounding batik. Then the artist machine quilted the door with variegated threads.
