Overdue Lines

There's been a bit of a break in my Diploma studies.  I had no workshops in January, but now I'm busy gathering stuff together for the February one, which will be multi-media collage.
At the end of last year I had a five day Creative Development course on 3D line.  I had such a great time that week making endless samples of three dimensional lines from anything that came to hand that I've been loathe to share the results with anyone in case they don't 'get it'.  Our tutor was fantastic and there was absolutely no pressure to produce any finished work, it was just a wonderful opportunity to play.  I can't tell you what a joy that was!
These are just a few of the ideas I spent time experimenting with.

String & tubular ribbon.

Recycled packaging and wire.

Raffia bundles wrapped with linen twine.

Careful placement of stitch gives lines on calico.

Florist's Midelino sticks are very bendy.
A line of silk cocoon dots.

Perle threads on string.

Wires wrapped in painted calico.

There are others combining fancy knitting and wood or metal grids and plastic, but I don't want to bore you!
