summer (winter) drawing project

some students are trying the “summer drawing project” from the distant stitch group on the OCA textile group page. I’ll try some of it too to see how it goes โ€” even though it’s winter here for me ๐Ÿ™‚ (which usually means more fibre projects as it’s nicer to knit in the colder months)

week1 โ€” exploring “What type of mark do you make most naturally?”

repeating geometric shapes seems to be my most natural mark making. the first page was done using conte pencils and the remainder using a fine (0,3) ink pen. we had to fill the page with marks. so I tried repeating the shapes to see the effect. I could definitely turn these pages into stitches. though I think lace would be suited for the circlesโ€”I might have to learn how to make lace next ๐Ÿ˜‰
