Collaborating with Magma Movement Arts of Gloucester for the event location, I am creating a Wearable Weeds Fashion Show. This event will feature locally grown and foraged plant material from Gloucester and the North Shore area artfully shaped into surprising and playful wearable forms. I will be making large crowns, headwear, and accessories to showcase the often overlooked weeds of the area as well as the brilliant blooms grown by nearby farmers: Cedar Rock in Essex and Grounded Flower Farm in Beverly.
If health officials deem it permissible we will hold a ticketed, in person event at Magma in November, exact date TBD. All ticket proceeds will go to Backyard Growers. If in person events are not admissible, the wearable pieces will be professionally photographed + auctioned off online.Proceeds again will be donated to Backyard Growers.
