"Working on some more \"wine makes the world go round\" brooches while sipping on some sweet, sweet love. Hmmm.....perhaps it is time to back away from the sewing machine! :0"
"Just trimming up the threads on a herd of handmade cow cards to be sent off to the amazing felt artist Jennifer Tsuchida! Another big thanks to Lauren Snell for her order of sheep, birds, squirrels and bees."
"A few more bits of found shell, tile and driftwood to play with as the days of summer begin to fade."

About UNMAKINGASACTIVISM

On Etsy since 2012

UNMADE is a celebration of all things small!

UNMADE is an online shop that strives to help build a local community of artists who use methods of unmaking within their creative practice. Owned and operated by curator, educator, arts writer and professional artist Jill Price, this shop will feature small works of art and craft that find new value and beauty in the old and the discarded.

Currently a PhD candidate at Queen's University in Cultural Studies, Price frames her current research and practice amidst theories of new materialism, ecological ethics and decolonial theory to explore and develop an UNMAKING methodology that can serve as a tool kit for other self-identified settler creatives to relinquish colonial perspectives and approaches to land and assist in making ecological and cultural reparations as part of Canada’s complex journey towards reconciliation.

    A contemporary landscape artist, I often re-utilize remnants of my practice to make functional art : A creative hoarder if you will. Turning old paintings into purses, bowls, cards, and collages is how I help the environment one object at a time.
