The theme for this semesters textiles self-directed project was Alchemy, as we were asked to undergo a process of transforming and manipulating materials, bringing diverse textiles together to form something new.

From the outset of the project I knew I wanted to use old clothes and found fabric as my main material. I wanted to explore the attachment I hold with these fabrics as I never immediately dispose of clothes once they have no more use. This gave me the desire to present these textiles in a way that shows that they still hold value and beauty, instead of hiding them away, usually stashed in the corner of my room, giving them new purpose.
