Recap on our first meeting!
May 26, 2015
Here’s a simple recap of what went on at our last meeting. We basically went over the creative potential of this project in bringing people together to share with one another. Debra expanded on this idea by sharing her personal story in relations to her ties with our community since her childhood days. She then asked us to reflect and look into the possible connections we may already have. So, let’s keep this idea fresh our in mind while attending the workshops!
We also had the opportunity in going over the basic process of setting up the loom and threads. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look as simple as 1, 2, 3..! But, I’m sure with all our efforts and Debra’s expertise, we’ll be just fine!
In order to move along with our plans in our upcoming meeting, please remember to come with some ideas of a possible design that you wish to incorporate! We will be sharing all of our ideas, and they can be essentially anything that you feel that represent you best.
There were also talks about going down to our local museum to visit some of the finished pieces to potentially garner some inspiration about the significance of this project—the commitment in strengthening and improving our communal connections. For those that aren’t in our group, but have never been to the museum, please come join us! Everyone is invited to come along, and why not? The more the merrier. The question is, when. That, you will have to stay tune for future updates (or better yet, just attend our workshops)!
We also talked about a possibility of going down to a grove to pick berries ourselves, as supplies for our dyes. Exciting, isn’t it? If you have any ideas or suggestions, please bring them to our next meeting, as we will be discussing about these potential “field trips,” if you will, coming into fruition!
That’s basically the gist of it! If I’m missing anything, feel free to let me know.
I look forward to hearing everyone’s ideas!
Until then, see you all in our next workshop!
