Sandra Champion's 'Vintage Fragments' combines original mended fragments from antique kimonos with her own stitching.
Jill Dixson's 'Japanese Fabrications ' uses a selection of vintage kimono remnants.
Also made from old kimono remnants is Aukje Boonstra's 'Old Kimono'. You might need to click and enlarge it to fully appreciate the lovely embroidery she has done on the lining.
Next is Elizabeth Chaffey's crazy patchwork 'Crazy Bag' .
Shaz Harrison-Williams is well-known for her colourful fold up hats which she sells at Salamanca Market. Her hats were too big for the A4 criteria of our exhibition so she put one in a little bag.... Both the bag and the hat are made from old woollen girl's juban (undergarment) fabric and a heavier wool 1970's kimono fabric. Here's the hat...
And finally Jan Janssen's fun 'Geisha Seuss-she'
That's all the entrants in our exhibition. A Huge thank you to all of them for sharing their very varied talents and for all their hardwork.
In my next post I hope to have one more 'special exhibit' using fabric, paper and other items from Wafu Works.
