Today we set up our exhibition in 'Grumpy in the city'. Over the next three days we will all spend some time at the exhibition talking to the public and hearing their response.

Today we finished off the garment by adding taught pieces of ribbon to the hula hoop frame. Changing the shelter to a sitting one rather than lying one made the most of our structure. I feel it has worked well and I can't wait for the response from the public.

Today was about making and developing your garment. The envelope to our garment is complete but we are still having problems with the structure: it needs to be a flexible skirt as well as a sturdy shelter. More experimentation is needed.

Group meeting introducing the brief and each other. We were then paired up to work on our 'wearable shelters'. My pair decided to base our idea on the thought of transforming skit and hula hoops.
