Brolly ponchos

A range of ponchos made from umbrellas. They were lined and had hoods and pockets and the original plastic caps formed toggles. Here they are at a show I held with the help of many wonderful friends and volunteers to showcase my work (1996).

Upcycled umbrellas

The canopies of umbrellas are an amazing resource and can be readily found after blustery storms in cities, festivals and outdoor events. What can be made from them?

Trashion passion

I have spent a lot of time making outfits, clothes and costume out of discarded materials in the past. These days my focus is more on dressing-up costumes for the kids, and visible mending, but I hope that when the opportunity presents itself I’ll be picking this up again someday.
