Time to break out the paper and exacto knife! Reply David Shi says: September 26, 2015 at 1:01 am For advanced art-making, try Erik Demaine's Curved Creases:http://erikdemaine.org/curved/ Reply David Shi says: September 26, 2015 at 2:03 am I've been noticing a theme of domesticity for the last few videos. Considering that it is so fundamental to our lives, yet frequently unsung, it makes sense to raise the domestic to the level of art! Reply Julia Revzin says: September 26, 2015 at 2:05 am I used to weave with sticks as a kid. And pieces of grass. I'm a little obssessed with weaving. I never thought of weaving the strips into a set field. I laways just wove strips both ways. Reply kristinisimaginary says: September 26, 2015 at 3:54 am As soon as I heard "paper weaving" I remembered doing that in first grade, I thought it was interesting to learn how widespread it is Reply Senga says: September 26, 2015 at 4:07 am "The Silver Pencil" in an amazing vintage YA book which features froebels methods, I swear it's one of the best books I've ever read! Reply WawazWorld says: September 26, 2015 at 5:11 am I'm so excited about this one. Not only is it an assignment that I can do, but it's comes at a time when I have many blank walls in my apartment. Reply scozio says: September 26, 2015 at 8:31 am This is very inspiring! I'm not looking forward to all the preparation required to make the strips, but I'm very tempted! 🙂 Reply Margaret Moon says: September 26, 2015 at 12:38 pm It's like a paper quilt. You should check out the International Quilt Festival held every year in Houston Texas. http://www.quilts.com/home/shows/viewer.php?page=FallFestival Reply Paola says: September 26, 2015 at 6:39 pm Watching her doing this really made me want to join her, it looks so enjoyable. I am definitely going to do this! ^^ Reply Emilie Bouchard says: September 26, 2015 at 9:29 pm I would love to have her as a teacher. Her voice is so down-to-earth and soothing and she makes points that really make you think. Reply Jessica Smith says: September 26, 2015 at 9:42 pm Nothing to do with the assignment. I went to see this exhibit recently. It was stunning! One of the things I loved was how I took away ideas for quilting designs. Thanks Michelle, for sharing your gift with us. Reply David Gonzalez says: September 27, 2015 at 1:33 am I suppose something similar could be done with pixel art. Or cross stitch. Reply Thomas Smith says: September 27, 2015 at 7:24 am There's only one proper way to embrace boredom, and that's alcohol. But, please continue… Reply Thomas Smith says: September 27, 2015 at 7:59 am Having watched the video, I think this is a great idea for pattern generation that can be important at any stage of art education. I wish it would go to the next step. Once you get a good idea for a pattern, what do you do with it? I feel like painting that pattern would be the next step, changing where appropriate, and seeing how it would fit in various items: a quilt, a book cover, a CD case, a jacket, a purse. It would be fun to see this go to the next level. Reply Izabel Campana says: September 27, 2015 at 12:39 pm So beautiful! Reply Marenna Boutilier says: September 27, 2015 at 1:15 pm The artist is so passionate about what's she is talking about! Reply Oliver Bollmann says: September 28, 2015 at 3:23 am Now I really want to know what other materials she wants to weave with… 😉 Great video, I especially enjoyed Sarah's intro of the artist and I the artist's passion and exploration of what some might dismiss as a "simple technique or exercise". Reply Quixii Q says: September 28, 2015 at 7:26 am Oh, interesting. My first thought watching her do this was, "Ohhh no, you're supposed to do a regular, over-under-over-under pattern!" It made me really uncomfortable to see her do a skip three, oops I guess I'll just do two at the end. I was always that kid in kindergarten who actually managed to have it alternate properly and such.And yet, her final product is pretty cool in its irregularities. Why shouldn't I try to do something like that?Perhaps I'll do two for this – one with a more regular, comfortable weaving, and one completely different and new to me. Reply Sam Vaughn says: September 28, 2015 at 3:30 pm I love activities like this, which have such simple borders, because then it's even easier to feel that you can explore outside the bounds 🙂 Reply KainusGulch says: September 29, 2015 at 3:44 am What if you drew a picture, sliced it like her base sheet, and wove in a special pattern on top of the drawing. So many hidden meanings….. Reply LunaMoonlight95 says: October 2, 2015 at 9:18 am I like this! I'm doing this! Reply Lauren Fairweather says: October 2, 2015 at 11:15 pm I love this one! I love the tactile nature of a project like this as well as the fact that it isn't made permanent until you're finished – it somehow becomes less intimidating when you can take it apart if you don't like it and try something different. I hope I end up with time to make some of these! Reply ThatOneJustMe says: October 4, 2015 at 10:09 pm So that's where the Dutch verb 'fröbelen' comes from! It means something like "crafting without experience or knowledge". Reply elephantschild says: October 4, 2015 at 11:07 pm This project seems soothing to me. I wish I could take a class with Ms. Grabner! Reply TheSubtleSubwoofer says: October 18, 2015 at 1:49 am I actually did a paper weaving in my art class and glued it to a box to make it look like a woven basket. It's interesting to think that wood can woven in many different ways. From willow branches to paper cutouts. 🙂 Reply standing here says: December 29, 2017 at 11:08 am coooooooooooolest outfit so like exciting but subtle? Reply Eduardo Castellon says: November 28, 2018 at 4:17 am John’s got a nice tan 👍 Reply Ishwari Mallick says: June 30, 2019 at 5:48 pm This looks like so much fun😁 Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
