Wimcee at Bleeding Heart

From next week whims from wimcee will be on sale in the gift shop at Bleeding Heart, a cafe, retail and gallery space that is not-for-profit and located in the historic School of Arts, 166 Ann Street, in Brisbane's CBD. (For more information about opening times etcetera see Bleeding Heart)

I plan to install a series of pouches, inspired by the collages of Nami Ogihara, amongst other things, so please visit Bleeding Heart and have a look at the work of a number of local crafters featured in their gift shop display.

These little pouches are made partly or fully from recycled and vintage fabrics and it's my intention that they are the first in a number of projects for 2011 exploring different vehicles for fabric/paper collage. However, they're also pretty cute!

Another form of fabric collage that I've really loved working has been cushion covers - these floral collages are other examples of new work for 2011.

(wimcee will be at market again soon, starting with the wonderful Mamma's Market at Buderim on February 19th. )
