Yesterday evening was opening reception for our RipOff project. We had a good crowd and lots of yummy stuff. I’d made a display of Toblerone chocolates in the shape of the mountain. It looked so pretty, but I forgot to take a picture of it!! So use your imagination…;-)
Artwork from previous years was on display:
As I said, we had a good turnout:
Kurt Hutterli, our installation artist, did a pre-piece, which was hilarious!
He had found an old rusty hood of a car and painted the mountain on it. Here you can see him explain to one of the innocent bystanders:
Today we started for real: we set up our workstations and got serious:
Although I did manage to wreck the left mountain side later and will have to do some scraping and repairing tomorrow!
Missing from the line-up is Terry, our gang-leader, who unfortunately got sick (hope you will join us soon!) and Barb, who apparently has already finished her garment, but will come on Thursday to finish weaving her matching scarf.
To be continued…;-)
