February 7th. Although this essay is not due until April 21st I have written the first draft and started the process of citation. This term has a series of lectures and seminars related to research proposals. I am writing about fibre art generally and focusing on one small aspect of the use of textiles in art. I am also trying to incorporate some creativity into the process by producing a series of items related to the course and the essay subject. Possibly some humour as well, although that will depend on how this work is received by my fellow students.
