This is the link to Through Our Hands, which is an online magazine based in the UK that Clare is affiliated with https://www.throughourhands.co.uk
The above photograph is Clare's piece called 'Bitter Harvest', which we discuss in the interview. We also talk about Clare's skills and interest in boro, sashiko, pojagi and costume design. Clare recently made seagull costumes and showed these on her blog for our amusement!
Clare's steampunk sparrow quilt (below) was accepted into the Aotearoa Quilters's travelling exhibition called Flight.
