Canal & River Trust habitat interactives

Last Spring, I was asked by the Canal and River Trust to make some new textile interactives for their waterways museums.

Red Admiral, drawer liner for Grassland habitat.

These pieces needed to fit in the slim line draws they had in their exhibition spaces which looked at the different habitats found near the canals and rivers around the Britain: grassland, hedgerows, wet fringe and offside.

Interactives for the Grassland habitat: cocoon, caterpillar, red admiral and butterfly eggs on nettle leaf.

The pieces needed to be robust enough to be used by regular visits from schools and community groups.

Woodmouse habitat draw liner.

As part of this commission, I also made small wearables that would still fit in the draws which were only 5cm deep, this meant that they had to either be small or flatly constructed. Here are some images of some the finished pieces.
