I have made a softie before when I worked at the Central Coast Rudolf Steiner School. I did a unit with the wonderfully creative year 10 students where they printed their lino prints onto fabric, then used that fabric and others to produce an organic shape which was then turned into a softie. It was an introductory fibre art exercise as later in the year they were making a wearable art piece to enter into the Wave exhibition at Shearwater Steiner School at Mullimbimby on the north coast of NSW.
My students made some great outfits out of recycled materials including a dress out of rubber thongs, another out of old film negatives and seatbelts. Just wish I'd taken photos of them.
So anyway this is Paula and I don't know if she'll be leaving Nords Wharf as Hamish has taken a bit of a shine to her!
