How Much Is This Blanket Really Worth?

How Much Is This Blanket Really Worth?

Window Gallery Exhibition

Have you ever seen a handmade blanket or afghan at a craft market or an op-shop and wondered: how long did it take to make? How much is it really worth? Artist Katie Theodorus set out to shed some light on this question by making a blanket of her own, from start to finish, and documenting the process.

She timed herself as she crocheted, changing colour every hour. Accompanying the piece is a mock invoice, detailing the time taken, and cost of materials and sundries. Do you think this amount is fair?

Is her work as a craftsperson worth as much as her work as an archiving officer? How much is her labour really worth to you?
