Sun & Flower Studios is a resistant force against the empire of wasteful, poor-quality fashion made in unethical conditions. Inspired by the 'buy once, buy well' movement, I strive to make items that are long-lasting, ethically sourced, and really bloomin' cute. Whether it's an adorable stegosaurus coat for your favourite doggo, or lovingly handcrafted crochet string bags to do your weekly shop in, each item is underscored by the belief that things should be useful, made with love, and as pretty as humanly possible.
Visual Arts and Design / Installation
Interwoven is an ongoing textile installation by local artist, Leah Vlatko. Taking the form of a large-scale weave, Interwoven invites audiences to interact with and contribute weaves to over the span of the exhibition. Casting aside the traditional no-touching rules of galleries, participants are asked to select yarn in response to certain questions about who they are and how they feel, creating a piece that is responsive to its social environment.
