Art School Student's Scrap Creation

Last updated: 10.23am, Wednesday 4th March 2020 by

Ruby Gardner is a final year woven textile student at Glasgow School of Art who has developed a body of work made from materials purchased from GPA’s scrapstore.

Her project focuses on themes of travel and navigation; specifically the experience of road trips, so she has chosen a colour palette to reflect this. She sourced rubber o-rings, bicycle tyre tubing, clear pvc tubing, polypropylene rope and a range of ribbons from the scrap store all of which appear in her final sample piece which is visualised as a layering piece for fashion.
It has been important to Ruby to develop a collection of textiles which utilises scrap materials as she can often feel guilty creating work in a sector of design which is famously known for its negative impact on the environment. She says that the scrapstore is a really important resource for creatives like her.
You can see her final collection at Glasgow School of Art’s Degree show from the 29th of May until the 7th of June.
