Growth & Decay – Themed Challenge 2013

The Themed Challenge is set at the December AGM and is a longer term project for members to produce any article using our crafts and inspired by the set theme.

The theme for 2013 was “Growth & Decay” and resulted in several entries from which Clare Hughes’s jacket was chosen as the winner.

Her jacket is made from nuno felt and the design was inspired by the colours and textures found on mould growth, which Clare thought followed the theme perfectly as moulds are growths of new life emerging from decaying materials
