I have so much work to do with getting the photos of my past work into order. One thing I found was some work I did on recycling. This is a year 10 unit I teach on sustainability. We spend to much on recycling glass but when it comes to textiles less than 4% are recycled. Most end up in land fill.
These items were all made from old textile samples from the 70's. When I got them they smelt of damp and looked as though they would only be good enough for rags. There wasn't much metreage in any of them so they had to be pieced. All ended up as usable items. What a waste it would have been to throw them out.
