Making

In making things, we make the world, we also remake ourselves. Artefacts are active and shape the world. Our world is unthinkable without objects. What would we be without objects? To make or craft is to remake the world, give it meaning whether the object is functional or not. The maker gives his/her own personal shape to the world by making objects.

Another scrumble patchwork hat





These hats have alife of their own thereis no planning inthe making , no set pattern they are totally random and serendipitous. I put my hand intoo the stash close my eyes and pull out the next ball of wool.

Les jardins be bagatelle, Salon de The , Plymouth Hat






I have crocheted in cut up recycled silk silk ties, used wool that I ahave collected over the years and used a pattern that is a natural evolution of trying to define a formal structure in hats. I leave the tails of wool as signs and remains of making, these have evolved into tassels, in later hats, crocheted into the fabric.
