Once is the title of my entry for the Common Threads Wearable Art Awards 2014, part of the Mandurah Stretch Festival.

Once is the use and lifespan of many of the items in our lives today. The by-products of manufacturing processes and discarded items now drift through our waterways.

AKA Gloria was entered in the Eco Wear section, the overall theme for the event was “Drift”. She is made from LOTS of tea bags, jeans, and the sterile fabric used to line surgical instrument trays.Wearableart1
