If you came to the UArts Wood shop this week, you would be watching many active hands and have to shuffle through lots of sawdust. The fellows continue their daily work on completing their pieces. Their working hours vary. Rex is a real night owl – who tends to come in later in the day and work until all hours of the night. Grant likes to come into the shop very early in the morning and leave at 6:00pm. Zina, Julia and Adrien come in half way between morning and lunch and stay until various hours.
And I come in anywhere between 11am and 11pm. Trying my best to capture all the stages of the fellows creative processes.
What is going on is very exciting!
