  10. Latest exhibition piece

    February 20, 2014 by Sarah

    I’ve been working on a piece inspired by Japanese boro textiles. Using recycled fabrics and threads, I’ve rusted them first and then dyed them in indigo. I’ve then stitched into the marks and stains using a variety of threads.

    This is part of the new exhibition by the Open Art Collective entitled ‘Continuum’ at the Golden Ball pub in York – the Preview is this evening.
