Process was the overwhelming response to yesterdays question, Project or Process. I'm finding myself a tad confused however, because if I have a look at the majority of venues bringing artists in to teach, there is a project. And if it's a guest instructor, it seems that it is a largeish project, one worth of spending two day so time and money on.
Kate said ' she was mining the project for the process' and I think that must be what is happening. I think it's a shift as we get a larger and larger population of experienced beaders.
Liz likes to take a component and apply 'artistic license' something I am totally for. I love it when a design is taken in one's own personal direction.
Katie said, 'I love the pieces' and so do I. I like for the creativity to be part of the technical process, so while I am working I can change up color, size, finish or style of beads and get something new.
Lexi, Nancy and Glen all thought both project and process was the right answer, a project which allowed you to explore process but change it up to be your own.
So as I continue to create designs destined for sharing I will give this more thought. And after this weekends class I will have some more practical experience to ponder.
