In 2017 I was named the Inaugural entrant into the Jumpers and Jazz Hall of Fame. For the 2018 festival, I have been invited to exhibit a brand spanking new installation in the Warwick Art Gallery. A recent feature in the Warwick Daily News revealed the details.
The exhibition features new pieces created from yarn which has been repurposed from garments sourced from op shops and my own closet.
The process has been exhausting and rewarding in equal parts. I’m excited to install each of the pieces and to see how they interact with each other. Some old friends will also make an appearance. I have selected pieces from a collection of my entries into the World of Wearableart.
I will also be hosting a workshop at the gallery on July 21. Zombie Yarn: Raised from the Dead will demonstrate some of the techniques that I have used in creating Junperhead.
Visit the Orange Wall Gallery July 12 – August 11 in the Warwick Art Gallery to see how these old clothes were Jumperheaded.
