Brief was a fall Dottee.
I can’t believe that it is two years since I created a series of three dimensional teaching puppets for the Environmental Science Centre at Burien.Last Sunday saw the grand opening of their facility at Seahurst Park.
I had hoped that my puppets were still in use and was pleased to find my gently used chiton (sea woodlouse),mussel and clam on display to be handled and enjoyed.
It seems such a strange but exciting thing to be doing.Back in my nursing days Prof’s round were the times when the nurses were in full control and shepherded the team around the children’s ward in Oxford.Hoping the children and parents would behave themselves.
Who would of thought that 25 years later I’d be going to meet a Professor of Fiber Arts at University of Washington to discuss my work.The campus reminds me so much of Oxford architecture and the feel of learning, deep thought and growth are such that I have to pinch myself that the Isis and Port Meadow are not on it’s boundaries.
This class assignment involves creating fabric from found objects one material and one fastener/adhesive.Needs to be flexible in one plane.Thinking about there meaning and communicating these.The final part is to make 2 yards of one the the four samples we create.
