Celebrating the 150th birthday of Alice, these quirky wall hangings make a great gift for the curious minded.
These Wall Mounted Animal Heads are handmade, using various felts and british standard padding. As the name suggests these Feltsidermy are created using mainly felt. Each head is filled with wadding and is backed onto a foam disc giving each head a nice backing board and will hang neatly onto the wall with a small loop on the back.
The Dormouse is complete with hand made artistic gold finish wire glasses.
All materials used are vegan friendly and kind to the environment, the felt itself is made from recycled plastic bottles.
Part of the current Apocalypsis collection for Aw14 make a bold statement in these clothes, the collection features beautifully tailored cotton twill pencil skirts, which fall just above the knee and are high waisted to show off the smallest part of your waist and features a series of four small box pleats at the back of each skirt.
Sheer vests that can be dressed up or down,
Crop tops which zip up at the front for a slightly punk finish, and features sleeves with little tucks at the shoulder and an open collar that can either stand up or be folded down.
Quirky and fun faux leather cropped jackets, with long hand-cut fringe accents. This jacket is the perfect for layering to create a statement outfit, its also lined in faux leather but is still very lightweight, and perfect for spring or fall.

Well, here it is the finished Re-mixed Dimensions collection. I’m so happy with these final pieces, there’re all very different but sit well together. Constructed textiles are amongst my favourites due to how tactile you can make them.
I have to give a hugh thank you to Catherine who modelled for me, she looks amazing.
After initial researching of all the various things I found influential for this project. I started playing with adornment of my own, using different weighted and textured materials and making each piece individually, decorating them by hand or with a sewing machine and arranging each piece onto a stand to create a silhouette I like, then sewing all the various pieces together by hand, so that it may be worn on the body.
These are some constructed textile experiments I’ve played with, I’m quite happy with them and I’ve used a wide range of methods these are fun to make and if you haven’t tried felting before I highly recommend it.
Over the last week I’ve been playing with constructed textiles and thought I’d try laying brass buttons in a dish of latex (so much fun!) It took about 3 days to dry out and when I removed the buttons the latex had imprinted the pattern and taken the colouring from them. Now I can cut them up and use them as buttons.
Conveying layers in different media, and experimenting with how it could be used on the body.
