I finally tried the cloth-weaving technique that Jude has so expertly made her own:
It’s a terrible photograph, I know; the light is not good here today. So far I’m thinking ‘eclipse’, or ‘dark side of the moon’. As a result of seeing the really excellent work produced so far in Jude’s class, I think I now realise that up to now I haven’t made story cloths. I’m not entirely sure yet what my cloths are – picture-cloths, perhaps, or poem-cloths – but I’m pretty sure they’re not story cloths. It’s very interesting how seeing someone else’s process can immediately illuminate something that you hadn’t recognised about your own, and that you see difference as well as similarity. The class is immensely enjoyable, and I’m learning a lot.
