Life In A Box, Homework 1

The wait is over. The Cabinet of Curiosities Class has begun!

Home work assignment number 1 is to define our goals for the class and ultimately for an embroidered casket.

I of course want to jump right in.

But Tricia, our fearless leader and mastermind behind this joy,
is right. Slow down, savor, enjoy and journal thoughts, dreams, and
goals.
So, Possibilities, which is what I am all about, are listed below. I love the idea of being FORCED! to set this down. I do it in a haphazard way already, in journals I have kept for years. Here it is in a very public format.
THEMES
1. The World of Possibilities

2. Architecture, a progression of rooms.

3. Folk Embroidery/ Costume

4. The Enchanted Forest

5. Doll House

6. A Stage

7. My Silk Road

8. Shop in a Box

Materials and Techniques I want to consider;
Stumpwork
Woodburning
Paper Mache
Wire
Simple Crank Mechanics
Sea Shells
Resin
.............I'm sure there's more.
