Day One and Panic Begins
Our first assignment was to construct ‘new’ fabrics from a
variety of colors paying attention to shape and line leading to figure and
ground. My first pieces were rather odd but I got better as the morning and
afternoon progressed. The next assignment was to cut all those pieces up and
construct a total design. And ALL by tomorrow morning!!!!!!!!!!!! So I cut all
my pieces up, layering them on top of each other and just cut away making a
variety of shapes that were roughly rectangular.
So I threw them up on the board, not over-thinking it and it
was a go!
I got it about a third pieced together and then was too
tired to continue. I have four more days left to go this week and this is the
most I have physically done in a long time.
Back to Shaw’s Inn hopefully for a better night’s sleep and
an early start in the morning.
