Rubber

The thick rubber bands were an interesting tool to work with. During this project I knitted with the material creating a costume neck piece. I was able to embellish the sturdy and strong surface with puff, pearl and use it as a stencil to resist dye. I wanted to create a beautiful and ghostlike mark onto a surface using such a hardwearing tool, originally used for parts for heavy machinery or in this case these rubber bands were cast away as a form of waste.
