Walking & Making 1

1 hour walk in Wharncliffe Woods



2.5 hrs silent making

small coffee / tea breaks in between

I had laid out binding wire, copper mesh and basic hand tools in advance, so work directly with what was to hand

Quite random coiling / winding around hand and then re-enforcing the structure between wire strands.

Became more controlling – wire coiling around bar and ‘weaving’

Moved onto mesh – this time annealed….don’t know why I haven’t done this before – very soft

Created fluid / fabric forms - dart and pleats

Very simple pressing – around pliers onto funnel ………….. to be continued
