How to Make …

It’s been a busy couple of months and I have made lots of new work.

One of the MA projects was to create a ‘How to make’ book. It had to contain enough instructions for anyone to be able to make the end product but could be serious or playful. I made a Special Edition of a book entitled ‘How to Make … a Silk Purse out of a sow’s ear’.



I wrote about the kind of pigs’ ears that might be suitable and how to find them.

The pack contained two pieces of silk, 1 metre of cord and a safety pin so that people could make a silk drawstring bag.
