MY MATERIAL PREP
The preparation of my materials is the key ingredient to creating truly one-of-a-kind pieces. Because 90% of my materials are upcycled. It’s virtually impossible to recreate the exact same thing again!
1️⃣ HUNTING & GATHERING
Whether it’s a ball of yarn or wool garment it all gets unravelled into bits of “string” which will then be upcycled into one of my weird and wonderful creations!
All the yarn gets cleaned. Balls of yarn are unwound and knitwear gets unravelled. They're made into hanks and soaked in a vinegar bath for a few days. Then hung out on the washing line to dry.
Last step and probably the most important is measuring out all my new materials
