The Cutting Circle, 2011

The Cutting Circle was a two-week research intensive by Holly McQuillan, Julian Roberts and Timo Rissanen that took place at Massey University in Wellington, New Zealand in 2011. Our aim was to investigate how our mix of expertise in cutting techniques could reveal new ways of working and understanding about own our practices. Importantly, it revealed a marked difference in the ways that we worked, despite operating with the shared goal of eliminating fabric waste and we discovered that “doing zero waste” can be a diverse set of practices.
