Interdisciplinary. Community. Advocacy. Humor.
Day two at Arrowmont started with a good breakfast:
Our class began with the viewing of images of artwork that related to sculptural fiber. We were then given our first assignment, to create a form that could contain something that is important to us.
We were given some materials to work with, in addition to what we brought. I had never worked with reeds, but have always wanted to.
Everyone experimented in very different ways and with different materials.
We were also shown different variations of knotless netting.
Time flew by today and soon it was time for dinner, with delicious ham, sweet potatoes and summer squash:
After dinner, I attended the evening talk, where some of the teachers and artists in residence showed their wonderful work. It’s been a full day with lots of enjoyable studio time. I am very excited about tomorrow, when we will start using gut in our work, and who doesn’t want to use gut?!
