When I was a little girl my mother used to take a wooden spool and nail four nails on to the top. I would use this simple little contraption to make wool snakes which I then inevitably wrapped around my Barbie dolls.
These days The Queen of Creativity is sporting a high tech gizmo called Embellish Knit. Once you hook the yarn at the top and add the weight at the bottom the Embellish Knit cranks out lots and lots of snakes with a simple turn of its handle.
The monkeys were very into making these snakes. The Queen of Creativity supplied them with Ikea frames and they used their yarn snakes to make these beautiful designs.
They were very proud of making the medium which they created these pictures with.
Questions to consider while creating:
What materials (medium) are we using to create?
What texture does this medium create?
How is line used? Does it define the shape?
What sort of effect is created with raised and recessed areas? (Depth)
Could this be considered a sculpture? (trick question- no it is two dimensional)
