About this project

Leaf Stitching is part of an ongoing exploration of stitching with found items. Leaves are collected whilst walking and either pressed and dried for future use, or they are used whilst still fresh. Through experimenting with leaf material Alice is exploring the potential of what she finds in the landscape. Many of theses small pieces will not have a long life span; they can change noticeably over a period of days, or even hours. A photographic record of these works in a publication is available.
