Wearable hat and wings made for a [re]design project using Makedo

The [re]craft 'Make-It-Yourself' book featured step-by-step instructions for two dozen designs made from domestic waste.

The book was launched at an exhibition at Dalslands Konstmuseum in Sweden in the summer of 2013.

The initial print run sold out with museum curator Bodil Soderlund describing it as "totally brilliant".

The above prototype was then simplified into step by step instructions and made using a more eclectic mix of packaging in order to better illustrate the use of average household waste in the design.


The version that follows was shown at Dalslands Konstmuseum and at the [re]craft stand at the East London Design Show 2013.
