Shibori clothing and textiles, eco-friendly home textiles and jewelry

Location @ AOS:

Arlington Town Hall (730 Mass Ave), 2nd Floor

I work in several distinct media and enjoy what each one brings. My home textiles are about sustainability and can help people cut down on disposable products. The shibori dyed fashions cut down on fast fashion waste; they are all up-cycled items. The shibori dye process is both meditative and exciting. The folding, binding, dyeing and rinsing all have a methodical rhythm to them. The discovery of the final product is when the magic happens. My jewelry is a process of assembly. I incorporate my own polymer clay beads, glass, metal and stone beads, as well as hardware and other findings. I enjoy bringing materials together in unexpected ways.
