Liberate, Renovate, Celebrate 4

The weaving of cloth strips is a useful technique to make a new, more robust cloth. The close ‘suture’ stitches give a uniform surface. Any imperfections, wear marks and stains are rendered irrelevant. The strips are wool and silk, dyed in various eucalypt baths. It could almost be a rag rescued from the farm workshop.

The crocheted edge of a beautifully shaped tray cover is used and embellished heavily. Flannel flowers are featured. In the wild they are such delicately beautiful stars amongst  the dust, the flies and the general dry ‘spikeyness’ of the Australian flora.
