I weaved and I fell in love!
I weaved with this amazing lady!
and I think I developed a big girl craft crush too!
I really admire the work of Maryann, her islander vibe and work are so beautiful!
I weaved without thought just let the materials do their thing, I combined fabric, string, rope and raffia!
We chatted, ate biscuits and sipped some tea.....
I even made some suggestions as to the colour choices for her weaving...can you believe that...complete novice telling the master what to do....I excused myself and explained it was the teacher in me coming out and I'm a bit bossy too.
She was very gracious, if you have a chance to join her for a weave session, do.
Making with clay this year is nigh on impossible so all my clay aspirations are to be put on the back burner for now, I don't have the time to keep the clay process ongoing! :(
....but once a week I get to teach the kidlets clay and whilst they make so do I.
Pinch pot heads or potheads are fun to make!
This is Mr & Mrs.
This weave business got me thinking.
Weaving with rope is very similar to coil building with clay, the control and forms you can make?
I think that is what I'd like to play with next, rope pot forms!
Are you with me?
Will it sate my clay heart for now?
Am I kidding myself?
