A big ‘thank-you’ to Jan for suggesting the idea for this quarter’s challenge, so come on everyone – let’s get inspired to just have a go!
Take a short walk from your door, perhaps just into your garden or a few hundred yards up the road.
Really look at things that you might usually pass by without noticing the detail.
Take photos or make sketches that could inspire you to felt, knit, weave or sew something – be it a small sample or a finished piece.
Look up as well as down.
Tree bark and lichen.
Look closely at small flowers.
Lichen, moss etc.
Colours, textures and patterns.
Annie made a flippant comment about one of the photos above, and after having a good laugh, we both thought ‘Why not?’ So now I have the inspiration for my challenge piece!
We would love to see photos of challenge pieces and it’s now very quick and simple to upload your photos – please use the link below.
