And now for something completely different! Fellow Ballyholme-ite Marianne Kennerley, founder of Second Life, will be launching her first collection of re-purposed garments at this Sunday's Totally Bazaar Vintage & Handmade Fair.
In Marianne's words she 'explores how garments can be pulled and stretched beyond their first expected life and, inspired by quality and craftmanship, produces clothing that is reclaimed and influenced by the existing garment'.
Her first collections focuses on upcyling / re-purposing mens shirts into ladies tops and skirts, and using all of the shirt pieces also funky chokers and scarves. A smaller range of necklaces called 'Every Little Helps' are crocheted from plastic bag wool!
