I spent some unexpected “free time” earlier this week “playing” and exploring a bit. I’ve got a couple of residencies as well as a series of workshops upcoming and most of my time has been spent readying for them, so it was good to pause for a day. I’m still in the middle of prep, as there have been last minute changes. Still, I hope for a little room to breathe and play as things get going.
I am looking forward to exploring a new purchase, a book called Aizome Origami Shibori and it’s all in Japanese. So a little translation is involved, and I’ve been taking it very slowly, although, it’s well illustrated. I’ve found though, that some things are not so clear (orientation of some folds or binding), so that my first results were not what I’d hoped for. So, I’m back to the drawing board in some respects.
