Fibre artist Noelle Hamlyn works primarily with paper and discarded books and whose intricate ‘Bookworks’ elevate and transform unwanted books into exquisite artworks by the meticulous ’spinning’ and embroidering of their printed pages. The term up-cycling refers to a process of repurposing an object to enhance its value. ‘Bookworks' are inspired by this philosophy. Most were damaged and tired. By up-cycling these books, Noelle hopes to ‘reframe’ and repurpose them while respecting their past lives. She is inspired by the textures of these papers and the way they feel in the hand. She invites you to share in this experience, and to bring your own stories with you as you consider her work.
