Well it’s been a bit of a marathon (with winter miseries thrown in to hinder the creative process) but everything is ready at last for the stall at the Port Adelaide Artist’s Festival on the 19th & 20th. If you’re in Adelaide please come along! (I however will be in Cambodia. But that’s another story…)
A core idea of our stall – and all my making – is to re-purpose, re-use and reclaim materials into new creations. I’ve worked with textiles and children’s clothing, and combined 2nd hand with new. As usual I’ve had fun raiding op-shops and people’s sewing cupboards for usable treasures. I enjoy the challenge of having adapt or alter my ideas to fit with what I can find 2nd hand. And I really love that this means that no one item is the same as another.
Here is some of the process and some finished items:
Baby ‘taggy’s’ – fabric comforter with ribbon tags around the edges.
And wee-people clothes decorated using Indian wooden stamps:
I’m also selling soap. The other ladies involved are selling ceramics and handmade dresses. They would love to see you there.
Until next time,
