Weaving Ghosts - Shetland Museum

About this project

Weaving Ghosts is a touring exhibition that started in Shetland then went to 3 venues in Norway. The work in the show changes as pieces are sold and new ones are made. All of the work in the show is made with materials gathered from or near beaches. Most of it is plastic waste that is now known as ghost gear. the forms are inspired by the materials and the lost tradition of basket making in the Shetland Islands.
