get a handle on yourself

Yesterday at the Benjamin Lignel workshop, half of the group were instructed to make a handle (an object that invited use, touching – it could subvert that also, repelling the user in some way even) in two hours. The other half had to make a pin. Then we swapped works, and the handlers put a handle onto the existing pin, and the pinners put a pin on the handle.

Here’s my handle, it’s in modelling card.

I’ve not whittled before…

I quite enjoyed it though

I wonder what’s in store for us today?
