week 1

I am twining a rope, trying to add a bit each day for 289 days. Maybe I wont do it every day, but most days.This rope will represent the ebb and flow of daily life on board the ships of the first fleet to Australia in 1787. There are 11 strands in my rope - one for each ship in the fleet. Together with my twining work, I will make a sketch a week - of the rope. I will try to vary my techniques, while basically drawing the same thing over and over.
I don't necessarily like this, but it is a start


  1. love the depth of thought that holds your process

  2. I feel that I have found my way in stitching and fabric. I love having a theme and research - it all started with a workshop with Ruth Hadlow, and now I am studying in the Textiles workshop at ANU

  3. I am really impressed with the significance of your project- tying your rope back to the first fleet.
