I really enjoyed seeing the work at the exhibition. This was my favourite piece that I saw today. The work is smaller than I had imagined and the strings are so precisely threaded.

In the afternoon we went back to the Centre and continued working on our own boxes inspired by Cornell.
Yesterday I had a mini crisis about wanting my work to be good but I'm over that today! I've decided to just have a go and see what happens. It's quite a psychological leap to make. We always want to do our best but when we're learning we just have to have a go, otherwise we'll never learn and improve.
That's been a useful lesson and something to remember to highlight when I am teaching my own students as they can often get stuck trying to be good.
So my box is inspired by Cornell's Pharmacy. I will take a photo of it and put it on the blog when it's done (although it may be an artful photo with a lovely filter!)
