WEAVING IS…AT LIVING ART

I have had the recent pleasure of teaching beginning weaving to a wonderful group at Living Art of Montana.

In a series of 4 classes, students created the pieces below. Upon completion, students were asked to write a paragraph starting with WEAVING IS…..
Each student put a few words from their writing on a slip of paper. All slips of paper were placed in a bowl. I randomly selected the slips of paper in turn to create the following:

WEAVING IS…
AN EXPRESSION OF SELF INTRICATELY TWINED, MOVING TO AND FRO, EMBRACING PATIENCE
      WEAVING CREATES TO LOVE AND DIE
TURNING LOOSE THREAD INTO FIRM FOUNDATIONS, BELIEVING THAT EFFORT AND DESIRE LEAD TO A CREATION OF USEFUL AND BEAUTIFUL UTILITY
     WEAVING IS …WEIRD—THE NEW THINGS YOU INVENT TO MAKE IT WORK…
A PRAYER IN COLOR AND TEXTURE
     I SEE WOVEN THINGS EVERYWHERE!
RHYTHM, COLOR, BREATH, PRAYER, PATIENCE, PROCESS, CONNECTION, PATTERNS, TIME AND LOVE MADE MANIFEST
     A SINGLE STRAND PASSING THROUGH
ON A LARGE SCALE, IT WARPS AROUND ONE’S BODY FOR WARTMTH. ON A SMALL SCALE, WEAVING WARMS THE SOUL
     WHERE IS THE ME I WAS?
