Wearable Art folk will be staging an exhibition of their wonderful costumes at one of our community venues.
Strangled in Nylon
Created by Sandra Thompson.
Using recycled Marlin fishing nylon I have woven hand dyed flax with wash up nylon and plastic from our beautiful coastline.
Sliding, gliding soaring, peaking
Bait fish seeking
Last second tipping
Plunging , gliding
Into a tangle, fish line mangle
Left to dangle
Can someone help please
Will soar no more
In search of her diet
Now she is quiet
Wahine i roto i te whero (Woman in Red)

This garment was a finalist in the 2012 Cult Couture show in the Recycled Revolution and was also selected for the Biennial Surface Design Fashion Show in San Antonio Texas in 2013.
It is constructed using recycled plastic and hand dyed chicken and guinea fowl feathers gifted from a South Island bird breeder.
