in October-November 2013 i spent six weeks in residence

at the Oregon College of Art + Craft

 

it was a joy to be given a small house

all to myself

on the campus of this lovely college

 

i wandered, gathered, wrote, dyed and stitched, worked with the ceramics department and spent time by the river and in the arboretum

immersed in a very different colour palette from that of home.
