Sew Awesome

I am so totally digging the work and skills of sewing artist, textile artist, crafts person, maker or simply artist Jennifer Collier.

Her practice focuses on creating work from paper; by bonding, waxing, trapping and stitching I produce unusual paper ‘fabrics’, which are used to explore the ‘remaking’ of household objects.

The papers she uses are treated as if cloth, with the main technique employed being stitch; a contemporary twist on traditional textiles.

All of her works are unique one-off pieces, available in a varierty of different recycled papers. The best part is that the work can be made to order with your own choice of ephemera! Connect and discuss personal commissions and see more of Jennifer Collier's awesome creations over here: Jennifer Collier.
