The second half of the week was spent on freeform or chaos weaving which I loved and can see myself using some of the willow stored in my garden to make some mixed media sculptures. Tim was an amazing teacher, he is incredibly knowledgeable and keen to share what he knows. His fine art background brought a different flavour and an unexpected freedom to what we made under his tutelage, he was very keen that we move away from making functional objects and experiment with different forms.
Here are a couple of photos I took during the course but more can be found (including a few of me ;o/) by following the weaving by the sea link above.
Even with all this beauty on such a grand scale, it was some lichen growing on a tree trunk that caught my creative attention and this is what I have been working on since we returned.
I like the lichens and the tassely bits but think I might repeat this piece with the bark represented using strips of cut-away resist.
