HANGING BY A THREAD
Coláiste Bride, Enniscorthy
This Iris Van Harpen inspired design used over 10,000 meters of unwanted thread donated by local sewing groups, several grannies and teachers in school. 200 meters of wire collected from family members and some old coat hangers were shaped around hand made customized wooden templates to create varying sizes of triangles. Countless hours were spent individually wrapping blue and green threads around the 265 wire triangles to create a delicate ombré starting at the top of the headpiece and continuing to the end point of the skirt.
