Recently I was able to participate in a class run by USA weaver Judy Dominic in the Blue Mountains. This was a wonderful opportunity to develop new skills and push the boundaries with some more sculptural works. Judy is a multi-skilled maker who is inspirational and nuturing. Works produced during this class include some experimentation with Illawarra Flame Tree pods, which has sparked a whole new area of research and practice. Learning how to create a sculptural plaited work was also exciting, using the insides of my favourite Tall Spike Rushes to achieve a bi-colour contrast. A joyful time was had with my fellow weaver @beyondbasketry.
