We had this rather sexist mindset when we were young that every morning, a father is expected to go to the office to work while a mother is expected to go to the wet market to buy groceries for the family. For our ‘morning’ theme, I was imagining a grocery bag made out of the rice plastic bag. Rice is our staple food and you can imagine how many bags we have accumulated over the years. We have been reusing the bags for many things; from garbage bags, weight bags to tree planting. Thinking that nobody (okay, may be not everybody) wants to go shopping literally holding a rice bag, I decided to do some weaving to sort of use it as camouflage (doesn’t work out as I imagined it could be, though).

I love the idea of creating something new by upcycling old, unused or broken things. If the newly transformed item turns useful, that’s wonderful, but if not, there’s always something new learned in the process of experimentation. For our first ‘egg’ project, I was kinda undecided whether I want to try my hands on the egg shells or the egg cartons. In the end, I went with the former and decided to leave the later for a possible future project. For this project, we’ll need egg shells, glue, paint and pasting surface. Let’s get going.
