This collection of works makes up part of a project I started at the beginning of 2020. I devised the Second String project to look at ways in which the problem of textile waste could be addressed within my practice.
For this project (which is ongoing) I have developed and continue to develop a series of swatches or ‘croquis’ that explore techniques, concepts and strategies for re-using textile waste. The project is about experimentation, research and development.
Through the project, I have aimed to explore a variety of techniques for the recycling of textiles and other waste materials (ie plastics). The result is a collection of swatches that investigate the recycling of textiles from a wide variety of angles.
