Art + Macrame = artcrame


I finally get to share a recent collaboration I have been working on!
Some of you may have seen snippets on instagram, cheeky peeks into our goings on!

So when you are asked by Michelle from Frankie and Swiss, to merge your knot skills with the art work of Tiel from TSK TSK

.......you say hell yes!


To create these works.
Images of Tiels painting were digitally printed onto fabric, which were then sewn into panels.
I carefully dyed my cotton twine to suit and knotted away!




After each panel, I was convinced that one was my favourite but as I slowly worked on each piece, my favourite shifted around to the point now that I love them all and want to keep them!

but alas not to be, really they are to be seen and for sale at the upcoming Big Design Market here in Mebourne.
December 6th -8th 2013

Just in time for the holidays!







Do you have a favourite?




We hope to do this again in the new year, cos it was so much fun!



Thanks Pippa :)
