Artist in Residence – Caroline Dear – Bulletin #3
I have been back at home on Skye with the wind and the rain, weather to take notice of.
I brought back some of the plant materials from the week’s gathering in Cwmbran and have used these up.
Lots of ideas and options are being processed quickly in my head as I need to make decisions very quickly. I am interested in making shoes to reflect specific habitats in and around Cwmbran. I am finalising the specific sites and habitats, the designs for different types of shoes and doing the relevant research.
- do I make pairs of shoes?
- which plants do I use for each?
- which techniques are best to use?
- how much can I make in the time available?
