Over the last few weeks I have been spending my Tuesday afternoons over at Holdbeck in Leeds with the lovely Men in Sheds. Who have been kind enough to let me join them and be a lady in a shed during this time!
Curio•sea•ty initially approached Men in Sheds for their advise on our proposed Sea Map piece that we are making – which wood should we use, how to split the size of this map, ways in which we can cut the map to shape, possible ways of hanging and displaying this piece – in a table format or/and wall mounted, so that the piece can be displayed multi-purposely etc.
From these discussions, I also asked if it would possible for me to come and work on producing my Salt Netters (current name – may change!) – and from this lots of sanding of wood logs has ensued, and the Netters are being made! I’m nearly at the end of sanding process and the construction of the Salt Netters has now begun – sorting, arranging, glueing, clamping and collaging – images of all this to follow!
It’s been great working within the Shedders, spreading the word as to the great work, facilities and hospitality they provide and I hope to be able to work with them again in the future!
