“We have all become painfully aware of the tremendous amount of textile waste we produce, and how so much of it ends up in landfill. But art can be made from almost anything, and most of what we throw away still contains life, some possibility to be something else… something beautiful or practical or both. Making art from the upcycled stretches the imagination, and tangibly demonstrates both the dignity of labour and a respect for materials. And may even lead to a greater understanding of the creative process itself.”
