macramé (organic cotton thread)
58 x 34cm
During COVID-19, I have experienced no energy, inspiration or motivation to do anything. But one gloomy day in July, somehow I felt the need to use my hands to release the tension I had in my body. I grabbed a giant ball of silver cotton thread and started unravelling and pilling it into bundles. My hands found the way to work gently with the material, bundle by bundle, knot by knot; suddenly, I was creating something that made me feel calm and peaceful. Healing Leaf was a way to connect back with my inner voice, creativity and passion for making textiles.
