complete weaving novice tackles super ambitious carpet

here’s the story:

lisa was very adamant that i submit a proposal to the 337 project’s artist designed miniature golf hole exhibition, as we’ve got quite the history of competing on mini golf courses all over the country. so, during a 2-week trip to texas in september 2009, i spent 2 days refining my idea and putting it down on paper.

and… i was one of the 18 artists selected!

my proposal? to weave the fairway of the hole.

easy, right? who cares that i’ve only, to date, woven about 6 feet of 6″ wide scarves and sample table runners. 100 square feet of putting green is the obvious next step.

mini golf proposal, take I

mini golf proposal, take I

my first proposal layout turned out to be really great — super cool, even — but i realized, after it was submitted, that it was 3 times too big. i, um, messed up my layout grid. ahem. lucky for me, the nice folks at the 337 project told me not to sweat it, as long as i promised to actually build a 100 square foot hole and not the behemoth i originally designed (above).

you’ll have to come to the opening june 2010 at the salt lake art center to see the final design. and stay tuned, i’m going to document the whole process on this blog!
