an open source architectural beadwork project from Kate McKinnon and a worldwide team of innovators
We had a wonderful time at the most recent Seed Bead Summit, solved all of the problems we brought to the table, including a fantastic way to sketch a Rick-Rack onto an All-Wing, and cast off any size of either form without the bother of an Exploding Round (!), and a beautifully clean notation system that we can use to code our finished work with numerical, materials or other information built into beadwork.
We wrapped up the week with a lecture in the MIT Stata Center, which we filmed. It is currently being edited, and will appear here and on our YouTube channel within the week.
And exciting news is upcoming regarding MIT- we have found a warm welcome here, and I’m moving quickly – I hope to start my time in Cambridge by teaching a four-week session at the upcoming 2016 Independent Activities Period (IAP). IAP is a special four week term at MIT that runs from the first week of January until the end of the month – so it’s practically tomorrow.
Thanks to everyone who participated in the week’s classes: Kim Van Antwerp, Ingrid Wangsvik, Sandy Butler, Kat Oliva, Nancy Jenner, Katherine Kosta, Laura Shea, Sheila Prosterman, Carol Jones, Joyce Peterson, Sam Norgard, Robin Bergman and Sharon Manewitz. Misako, we missed you!
