The workshop is tied to her new exhibition Worn Translations which continues her exploration of soft sculpture as a means of charting the life of objects via the interconnections between wearer and object. Her re-imagining of worn clothing into new textile jewellery is a neat play on the idea of wearable adornment. We love the playful use of colour, humour and scale within her work - just check out the pieces above from her Public Displays of Attention (below) and you know we love anything that fosters the re-use of refuse. Breathing new life and new use into discarded garments is something Ramona and I are both big believers in - we both have collections of cast offs in varying states of transformation from t-shirt yarn to patchwork quilts, much to the dismay/amusement of our families!
