Murmuring Shorelines

Traditional forms of lounge wear and home wear interact with the longings for play and exploration outdoors.

A range of handwork techniques - knitting to traditional tailoring - are utilized as a form of meditative practice during the lockdown year.

Majority of the textiles used are upcycled and reclaimed materials.  This exploration began with the lace bird made from reclaimed fishing lines that have been collected from sea shores.  This project re-contextualizes waste as a valuable resource for design and production as well as a tool for environmental amelioration

Accompanying knit pieces are created with unraveled yarn from discarded sweaters. By addressing this modern issue through traditional techniques, slow handwork provides a space for reflection and re-evaluation.
