A Symbiotic Gathering

Megs sustainable approach to working sees her utilising her fabrics that are either repurposed or grown herself at home. A range of silk offcuts, re-purposed mattress fabric and Kombucha scoby or ‘leather’ have gone through lengthy processes, that include the application of shibori dye-resist methods, immersion in puffball dye baths and fabric manipulation techniques.  These explorations have resulted in a collection of three-dimensional objects that, when placed on the body, aim to open up a dialogue to explore new design possibilities and applications.  Working intuitively while exploring new possibilities for the materials, the unique outcomes aim to question our view of the world, how we produce, consume and the impact our actions have on the earth.  The hope is to stimulate new perspectives within these practices, so that we can design sustainably for the future, in order to bring about renewal and positive change.
