  • 'Digital Crafting at CUSTHOM'

Ooi, Jemma, 2016, Journal Article, 'Digital Crafting at CUSTHOM' Making Futures: craft and the (re)turn of the maker in a post-global sustainably aware society, 4 (1). online. ISSN 2042-1664

Abstract or Description:

In this paper Ooi described her experience of working with digital technologies as an integral part of her own design studio: CUSTHOM, where her business partner and herself design and manufacture wallpapers, fabrics and fine bone china.
The core of how we design and make lies in the craft of both digital and hand making, printing by silk screen and block to interpreting stitch weight, direction and length, through digital design programmes for embroidery, to hand metallic foil finishing. Exploiting techniques originally developed for cloth, the author re-interpret these methods of making to capitalise on the benefits and potential of making through a combination of analogue and digital techniques.
