Hi everyone,

As you know, last month we focused on Peyote Triangles. This month provides a chance for the more experienced to continue their exploration and for the less experienced to begin their journey. If you did not attend last month's meeting or feel the need to work further on the basics of Peyote Triangles, please arrive as early as you can, the closer to 6:30, the better. We'll work together to make sure everyone is able to enjoy and build on these techniques.

Also, if you attended last month, please bring with you what you worked on last month and bring your feedback for what worked and what didn't work for last time. We need your thoughtful input to make this work.

Using the techniques from last month, we we will explore:

a 4-sided square

an open 4-sided square

attaching components to themselves

constructing a “puffy” triangle and/or square
