The first day was spent in the workshop. John gave use some black and white striped paper and explained the design project for the day was to create some optical illusion pieces of design work by cutting and resticking the striped paper.
I have done this design exercise before. It is a good fun exercise to do but can be very tiring on the eyes as you are looking at black and white and optical effects all day. These are the samples I produced during the day.
These pieces are not meant to be a finished piece but could be incorporated into some other work in small sections. I did start to put some colour into the 3rd piece but have not done any more with these pieces yet. It was a good but very tiring day. We were all in bed by about 10pm!!! very early by knitting holiday standards!
