CQ JQ Feb20 Mussel Holes
Week 8 of Surface, Structure, Stitch and the start of our 5 weeks working on our own project . Each person shared their ideas and I showed my 'homework' from Glenthorne
When I was talking to Louise , we looked in particular at the multiples I'd produced ( the stack of colour catcher shapes disintegrated as she handled it as I hadn't secured it sufficiently, beads everywhere! ) suggesting overlapping strings of them, perhaps using an acrylic box from Muji to display them. I went at lunchtime to have a look , what an array of possibilities.
I put together more ' sandwiches' of indigo fabrics with bondaweb between but then started playing with the 'holes ' leftover from cutting them out , putting together 9 inch journal Quilts using denim from jeans in the scrap basket.
The stack of colour catchers with holes in was particularly exciting and Louise had some ideas about stitching them together. Many people weren't familiar with the potential of used colour catchers ( or what they were ) but I've been using them for years including the start of daily drawing practice in 2013 ( tho it didn't get too far )
I was also reminded how much I like the shapes and limited colour palette in Paul Feilers work
Now I just need to sort out what I'm doing in tomorrow's class....
