At the beginning of the Covid-19 epidemic, we were all "staying safer at home" where I live. To encourage myself to go outside, I started creating an outdoor space that I called my "Quarantine Chamber." Built under my hemlock trees, it provided privacy and a place of contemplation, where I could restore my soul.
The chamber is made from natural materials from my yard and from rope. I used dried English ivy and hosta stems and leaves to make one wall. Another is made from sticks. One rope wall is made in Figure 8 Looping. The other is made with sprang weaving.
