this week has been all about paper as I embarked on Rachel* Hazell’s marvellous e.course
keeping my hand in, and exploring with other creatives is a good way to feed the creative well,
& continue my amateur development….
like any creative and inspiring course the effects commenced
as soon as I registered, & I was off, preparing. . .
a materials box, collecting papers, starting a notebook –
plus Rachel also provided pre-course exercises, my kind of work!
cut it out, splice it, pleat it, discover its marvels…
noting how the light falls on it and reflects…
making journal from found papers…some will be gifts
a small notebook for tucking in a bag….
writing is an integral part of my life, an illuminating tool for ascertaining and clarifying ideas
January & February’s books: monthly audit of events, using writing & images
logging things of note: towards appreciating the journey & documenting it –
at the end of the year there will be 12 small black books
and finally it’s Saturday and on opening the e.course classroom I see there is another task – I’m rapt!
