From my studio: latest linen jacket in charcoal grey, with screenprinted facing and collage-appliqué on the back, all made from recycled fabric. I machine-embroidered the face, a self portrait obviously, in a workshop led by the inspiring artist Claire Heminsley of Incahoots. My linen jackets are size 14/16 with one-of-a-kind decorations and made to order. The impressive clay button was made by a fellow artist.
A while ago my studio was visited by Vaso Makri. Vaso is the manager of Circular Tayside, a project that aims to help local businesses and organisations transition towards circular economy where “waste is given value and re-introduced to the economic system”. Vaso interviewed me about my mission and business goals working with repurposed fabric and invited me to portray my contribution to slow fashion and circular economy on Circular Tayside’s Be Inspired page. Here is the link.
And so the new decade begins! With a fabric rendition of landscape near my studio: Keillor Fields. Recycled fabric, even some of the sewing and embroidery threads are vintage.
