(It all started off on Hogmanay when somebody handed me a strange object and asked – “What can you do with this? Take it away and have a go!” So my Funaday project was finding out what I could do with a six foot shed skin from a boa constrictor!)
If you want to see what I did come along to the FunADay Exhibition this weekend.
It’s in WASP studios, Meadowmill, West Henderson Wynd, Dundee. The opening night is on Friday 10 February from 7 – 9pm. The Exhibition runs from 10.00am – 7.00pm on Saturday and Sunday.
Here are some photographs I took of the fun I had during the month.
Well, I’m a crochet tutor! So the first thing I saw when I looked at this shed snakeskin was a beautiful lacy crochet pattern. Don’t know quite how it would turn out or what I might use it for. Maybe give this a try out sometime and see if it can be made into a working pattern. Probably would need a more delicate name than Boa’s Belly Stitch though!
I am an Arts Worker producing contemporary artwork and original freeform crochet, and delivering workshops and courses. This summer I am delivering Tunisian crochet workshops, as this has recently had a resurgence in popularity!
