Found Materials

by rnb10

Going back to the research I found on Louise O’Hara’s work, I wanted to do something similar to her way of working. I found collecting used items interesting and was intrigued at what I could make out of other peoples junk. Recycling and reusing is a small way of making the world a better place so I thought why not have a go at doing that myself.
I was hoping to put a bit of the Leeds environment into my work and I feel like using used materials from around Leeds could do this, I am excited to see the outcome of using unusual materials to sew with and what does and does not work.


  • Use plastic bags to sew with
  • Try to find atleast 4 different materials to sew with
