Stage 2 Exercise 4
For this exercise, we were asked to make a grid using rigid materials. Still in the middle of relocating from Japan to UK, I had to use whatever I could find! I again decided to use use plastic construction toys to form my rigid grid, binding them with string and then wrapping all the pieces in string. I then wrapped some of the spaces with different coloured yarns.
I didn’t really enjoy working with the plastic, so as soon as I had a chance I took myself of to the beach and collected various bits of driftwood and old bits of rope and string that had been wasted up on the shore. When I got home I had a very enjoyable time binding the driftwood into a frame and weaving through it pies of string and rope.
