The Mermaid’s Washing Line by Gail Marshal

Hospital waste is a real problem.

Personal Protective Equipment Sterile Wraps and Theatre Set Sterile Wraps are all discarded from our hospitals in huge numbers. In that light, The Mermaids Washing Line has been created to draw attention to how much waste is being produced. This washing line represents one day’s waste from one operational theatre.

Gail Marshall is a well traveled and experienced sewing machinist. Sewing products from wedding dresses and fashion collections to rugby scrum caps and military flack jackets. Sewing construction is a favourite and when doodling, this is the result The Mermaids Washing Line!
