TRAVELLING LITE

- PATTERNING THE LANDSCAPE SONG ON FABRIC AND PAPER -

I live in the South Island of New Zealand

in an adobe mud brick house

nestled in Lud Valley, 15 kilometres out of Nelson.

 

I colour natural fabrics with plants, windfalls and weeds

from our food forest, permaculture garden and the local areas.

 

Handmade linen paper is made from discarded waste from

the making process and transformed into art works.

 

I aspire to making clothing and accessories

that give long lasting comfort and pleasure.

memories of a life

the feel of rain and sun,

night and day

are held in every fibre of the fabric

Natural dyeing

I use only natural fabric and materials to create products without chemicals or processed manufacture.

PaperWork

I am lucky enough to own a ‘critter’ made by Mark Lander which enables me to turn my waste fabric into paper.

I make a variety of artworks and products from the paper and also hold paper making workshops a couple of times a year

comfort

clothes made from fabrics that maintain the body temperature

zero Waste  Policy

The waste from every fabric used is given a second chance to be artwork or accessory.

sustainable  fabric

I source fabrics that are not processed around the world and seek out second hand treasures.

locally made

All products are dyed with bio regional plants and lovingly handmade in Nelson, New Zealand.
