Following a wonderful design and drawing workshop with Ruth Hadlow, (http://www.ruthhadlow.net) I have committed to two briefs, or challenges.
Brief 1: Current practice and its extension possibilities: I am currently exploring crochet forms and their application to 3 D textile works. How many variations on a theme can I make with a simple sphere if I vary thread, stitch and scale? My task is to blog each week a sphere in crochet which varies the yarn , the stitch and the embellishment.
Brief 2: Exploration of drawing techniques: I will explore a lot of ways of drawing a weekly leaf image , which I will select on a walk (in the interests of fitness!), and subsequently render that drawing in a sample of a leaf.
The weekly results will appear here as links to my blog.
