If you haven’t already, meet Class of 2015 College of Charleston Alumna, Katie Nocella!
As a dedicated alumna to CofC’s Alliance for Planet Earth, she takes #ZeroWaste into intentional consideration while perfecting her craft. Katie finds a certain beauty in the transformation of objects readily available to her. In her life, this looks like:
- reconstructing clothes and jewelry from old pieces
- making cards from saved packaging
- weaving beautiful creations with scraps of fabric, ribbon, and hair
Katie took an instinctive interest to making natural dyes from collected materials from her surroundings. This interest has taken off as she develops her style and interests through experimentation with different botanicals and materials. By taking the these experiments into garment making and weaving, she has created a unique style and body of work that reflects her creative process and environmental connections.
