Initially influenced by fashion & garment construction processes, currently combined with an obsession for 3D technologies & all things sculpture. This has seen Erica adapt her wealth of knowledge to produce an array of stitched, molded and assembled sculpture, wearables & installations art pieces.

Some of Gray’s recent achievements include the Award for Artistic Excellence in the Townsville’s 2017  Strand Ephemera sculpture exhibition and Runner-Up in the Wearable Technology Award in the prestigious World of Wearable Art Awards Show also in 2017. Erica has been a finalist in the World of WearableArt Awards Show for six consecutive years with a total of nine wearable entry pieces.

SCULPTURED WEARABLES

Over the first couple of days we will discuss and experiment with the practicalities for each technique before starting your own creative wearable.
