..to get me thinking about Exercise Textiles from found materials

In the Exercise – Start collecting I explained I always squirreled away gems and treasures for future use. So having so much to choose from and knowing that I am a visual thinker I took some photos of my resources so I could think about it in a more focussed way. These are just a few of my photos but it definitely worked as a way to focus my thoughts.

Packaging supplies - net bags, odds and ends, anything that I feel I could use for texture to sew, draw or print with.

Packaging - mesh, bubble, tissue etc - all would normally have been thrown away.
