Start with a sketch, but make it quick. There’s real work to be done.

For the past five weeks at #Woodchat on Air, we have been playing our new design game called #Woodchat’s Picture Inspiration. We looked at designs based on a photograph and discussed the creative process and explored potential variations. The discussions were recorded and posted on YouTube.
The first week, we started with a picture of shavings and came up with some really creative designs.
The second week, we examined a colourful scene from KaBoom! The Port Moody Art Explosion for inspiration.
In week three, we studied a photo of a metal bench that inspired a quilt rack built by Dyami Plotke.
The fourth week, our source of inspiration was a photo of an adjustable candle holder, that proved to be tougher to work with than we thought.
In week five, we looked at a photo of an art installation for inspiration.
That brings us to week six. For this week’s Picture Inspiration, our challenge is to design something inspired by this photo.
Designs are due Wednesday May 28, 7pm (e-mail them to me, or share them with us on Twitter using hashtag #Woodchat), when they will be shared on #Woodchat.
#Woodchat on Air runs every Wednesday from 7-8pm, Pacific time.
