Common Objects – 2010

Leave a comment

Bring a common, non-perishable object as a source of inspiration in an opaque bag to the November meeting. This item does not need to appear on the finished product; t is for inspiration only. We will be mixing up the bags and then picking one.

Create a mixed media piece no bigger than 36” on any side or smaller than 12” on any side. You may use fabric, but the non-fabric areas should be recognizable as a significant element(s) of the design.

Mixed media would include things such as wood, paper, metal, leather, glass, ceramic, or anything other than fabric you can attach to the piece. The piece should be able to be hung on a wall.
