filling the void

This is my latest project for a group show called The Red Thread, at the Kaleido gallery this summer. This "necklace" is made of scraps of paper in many different qualities, folded and sewn on to a leather strap, the name of the piece is Filling the Void. Other exhibitors, apart from members of Kaleido, are a group of dutch artists from a similar cooperative in Holland: Galerie Zône. After summer the show will travel on to Leiden, in Holland, in the beginning of September.

book and box workshop

Held the second weekend workshop at HDK and the textile department in April. This time I taught them how to make boxes and accordion books. It's so rewarding to teach these courses, so inspiring to see what comes out of their hands. Here are some examples of their work.
