I've been juggling a number of things; as well as visiting my field -- more of that later . The opportunity to do an online workshop with Alice Fox came up. The focus of this was making cordage and this seemed to connect with my current preoccupations. I've made machine cords and enjoyed the way a mixture of threads come together mingling colour and texture. The focus here was much more pared back. Narrow strips of fabric, in this case calico, were paired and through a twisting technique were made to hold each other in place producing an organic looking cordage.
