The Lion, The Kitch & The Wardrobe: Noisily Festival

I love to reuse and upcycle wherever possible and the starting point for this fabulous installation was finding the original wardrobe in the festival’s storage space. I immediately fell in love with it and had to use it as the basis for something new and exciting.

I pulled together some other elements from previous installations including laser cut offcuts, some incredible iridescent material donated by the V&A, plus two very beautifully painted lion heads painted by artist Frances Erasmus for Noisily in 2016.

Working with talented designers and prop makers Justine Marshall, Katherine Smith, and carpenter Casper Phillips we co-designed this piece.
