GO TO YARN
you will need:
4 x 100g LIGHT MOONSHINE
Since materials (yarn and fibre chiefly) and their untold qualities; tactile, soft, bouncy, alive etc., are what we encounter, you could say that our sensory domain is and has been moulded by material interaction.
So working with yarn and fibre is a thoroughly rich knowledge and experience based experimental domain that taps into other forms of intellect, memory, intuition etc..
Before we can create or design, we need to investigate, communicate, attempt, discover, play, question, challenge, and do. Mostly knit and unravel.
The more of our mental ability we bring into ‘the doing’ the deeper and more enriching the experience.
