an open source architectural beadwork project from Kate McKinnon and a worldwide team of innovators
Greetings, beaders! Thank you for your patience as we finish our books. We’ll have a shipping update for you soon.
I want to remind you all of our Book Launch Week, coming up in the third week of October in Boston/Cambridge. Hundreds of thousands of people have participated in the wave of creativity and hard work that has brought us to this point. We are so excited to unfurl the still-expanding suites of new ideas, techniques and forms to the world.
If any of you are in the area, we encourage you to find us – our locations will be announced soon.
Above, an exploration of perhaps the most exciting cycle form yet; this version beaded by Joke van Biesen, from the Netherlands.
Joke worked from Claudia Furthner’s modification to an idea from the questing mind of Susannah Thomson, from England. Claudia is from Austria. Illustrations and charts for this piece were done in Capetown, South Africa, by Karen Beningfield, and the final hand-drawings are coming from Brooklyn. The images will be finished in California. This is a truly global, 24 hour collaboration.
Below, another interpretation by Claudia. Can you guess at what is happening here? Both pieces are the same architecture.
