Day 3 was a busy and productive day.  We started with a slide show, which included my, now, favorite work by Pat Hickman.  I can’t remember what it is called, but they are little lizards, that she FOUND dead and encased in gut…superb!

Our assignment for today was to think about time:

We continued working on experimental forms for the first part of the day:

I made a basket from little electrical wires I’ve had for a while:

Pat introduced knotted netting, which we all quickly got the hang of.  Then, after lunch, she showed us how to use gut or hog casings in our work.  Unfortunately, my camera and I are not getting along, and I don’t seem to have the film I though I took of her presentation!  Suffice it to say that we’ve had a great time, this afternoon, using casings in lots of different ways:

 

Here’s what I came up with:

I am waiting for the casings to dry to see what I have so far and will keep developing my projects tomorrow.  I think the whole day tomorrow will be taken up with 'casing' everything on my table!

 

And I must not forget the great turkey dinner we had tonight!
