Orange Scarf

I am on the hand made - eco-friendly birthday gift roll for May - having completed a gift for an old uni girl friend whose birthday I simply can't forget as it is a few days after mine!

Although I have dabbled in the world of scarf making a little this one is much more ambitious and is inspired by the Ballarat based artist Nin Coutts-Slater. Year ago when I managed an artist run space she did a residency of stitching up found fabric into fantastic creations. I was very jealous but it has taken a few years to get around to having a play.

Proudly I took it home from the studio and my husband asked if I had cut it up from a table cloth - resulting in an instant sulky me .

Card board city - made by father and son
Image from the book called Heads On and We Shoot: The Making of Where the Wild Things Are

Remember yonks ago I was carrying on about this cardboard city - that I saw in the film Where the Wild things Are - I dearly love this work for it sheer playfulness and joy in making - not to mention the colours.
