Here's our challenge for this week - make something with a door in it. It can open or not, just as you like, it can be literal or metaphorical ... you choose!
The lower picture shows a fairy door in the skirting board of my Studio. I made it from lolly sticks, paperclay, the hinges are card and the handle is an upholstery tack. I put it there for my grand-daughter to find and at 3 she already loves it! Now I have to think of somewhere else in the house to hide one.
The upper photos show a hanging I made from card and paper. I was thinking a lot about the idea of home, and going home, not least because my own mother is dying. So I wanted my piece to be about home as in house, but also an eternal home element. Looking forward to seeing your doors and hearing what they mean to you .....
