A den is about privacy, about safety and about giving yourself a breathing space, whether alone or with a group, in a building or in the landscape.
In a woodland den you can look out through undergrowth and branches into the outside world while still retaining that sense of alone-ness. You can give yourself time to withdraw and space to think, exercise your imagination or just dream.
In my den, you also help to create it. Use your finger-knitting skills, or come and learn the art of finger knitting to help make a portable den using a simple frame with many layers of finger knitted fronds.
Join in the conversation and be part of a bigger, ongoing project, a project which is about creativity, encounters with people, with place and the traces left behind.
This den will be on show as part of the Masters Show at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, University of Dundee, from 19th to 28th August. Come and try some finger knitting!!
