Class; Day 4

What fabrics?Thursday’s class was a bit more intense, not in the way it had been; making fabrics and using new or improved techniques, but putting it all together in a composition. Looking at all of the fabrics and papers I have been making (with no real thought as to the final goal), I see I have a lot of very busy materials to work with. This will be a challenge!

To start, I cleared a space on my board and started pinning fabrics together to see if they even looked good (click on photos to bigmafy).

There was a lot of this.

And a lot more.

It’s truly amazing how much time you can spend just putting fabrics together.

Then ideas started to come. I decided on a three panel piece to explore the three ideas I had (sort of) forming. Three similar ideas – my first series! 🙂

Panel A, first audition

I got a rough idea of what I wanted for my first panel,
this one is all fabrics.

And the final panel is all paper (except for one tiny square) .

By this time the day was over and my brain hurt.
But it will be a good start for tomorrow, the final day of class. The pressure is on!

One also needs to reflect on how it would be so great to do this every day, all year. Then I realize how tired I am after four days of this kind of intensity and drag my self upstairs to bed!
