mhcc calligraphy: class 7

by gl. at 5:23 pm

we didn't have class yesterday because of veteran's day, but marti offered a pastepaper workshop today to make up for it. she supplied most everything, but i brought most of the rest of my arches text wove and donated it to the cause. i want people to have stuff they'll use if i'm not using it, and not having it around means i can find other paper that works for me without feeling guilty about not using the stuff i have.

i started off doing larger designs & patterns, but inspired by sven's "notes on making art" (especially "get through your first 50 failures as quickly as possible"), i tore the sheets into 16 smaller bits so i could try more techniques more quickly, which felt much more creative and made me much less invested in any particualr piece. pastepaper should have a subtle pattern one could write on later, but my favorite pastepaper tends to be the ones that look like finished pieces on their own.

[update 11.22: i've added pastepaper pix & comments on a separate post.]
