Unravelled at Alnmouth

Snip 2013
My paper collage featuring my own pattern designs and childhood book references displayed at Alnmouth Arts Festival

Unravelled was part of a joint collaboration with Sara Walton exploring vintage domestic textiles and the unknown men, women and children who made them.

Pattern drawing by revolving stencils

This wonderful set of spirograph came to me from a relative who was having a clear out of games. I love the packaging colours and the way it is listed as being "A new invention for everyone"! The typography is simple and cool, I think.
This boxed game started me thinking how different children's games are today, there is something relaxing and meditative about creating spirographs. Inside the box the biros had long gone but there were delicate spirograph designs on papers- I have passed this on to my clever friend who makes recycled book kits www.homewardboundbooks.me.uk
