robyn lees-west's textile taxidermy
If you wince at the word ‘taxidermy’, never fear! Local designer Robyn Lees-West creates stunning faux taxidermy birds – the key word being faux. Robyn's colourful creatures are each made from recycled fabrics and stitched over many hours. “I’ve promised to make a life-sized Cassowary before the end of the year," she says. "I haven’t decided yet if he should have a party hat.” It’s a big ol’ yes from us, Robyn. View the rest of her incredible collection here.
