About this project

I am one of 9 makers commissioned as part of a research project to transform a tubular metal chair frame.Using yarn to transform the chair into something other is a way of both finding continuity of its past story but also weaving a new chapter. The joy of taking part in this project was the opportunity to turn something everyday and mundane everyday piece of furniture and take away its function and to metamorphose it into an object with a new and maybe mysterious purpose.
