A beastie box
Having had a dabble with the fibreartsmixedmedia Ning I got involved in a 'conversation' about the fear that surrounds committing your ideas to cloth. One response really set me thinking, talking about fear as a 'beastie' rather than as nebulous low slung cloud that I always think of it as. A 'beastie' is defineable, manageable and most importantly containable. So I made a beastie box which will shortly be on it's way to Helen who has given me a new take on fear!
Unfortunately I cant credit the design of the box - I think it has it's origins in origami but am willing to stand corrected. The photo I used is of Sliegeag on the Isle of Lewis.
