I've been watching some videos over on youtube on how to do really easy Celtic knotwork. I love how easy he makes the explanation, so I thought I'd show you my notes and first attempts. First, his introductory video, then you can check out what I have done so far.
First my notes so that I could remember what he had said in the video.
Then some practising, including switching between pointy corners and curved corners as well as learning how to treat a split line.
So there you have it, in just a coupoel of hours of watching and playing I have the basics sorted. One of the key points is to keep the same width all the way round. While I managed that on most of those pieces above, once I switched to half the scale on the same paper, I began to struggle as you can see in the cross below.
I did that cross during church on Sunday. I am used to moving and dancing in worship (a lot) and our church has moved to a building where that is not so easy, so I choose other ways to express myself during worship and this was one of those times. I chose to fracture the cross with split lines in various places. This was to represent the fracturing into more difficult concepts of my previously easy to figure out nice and clear faith.
