Just to say ... AUDIO-Small Journeys Continue
Small Journeys Continue
Thinking today. I suppose small loose bits of cloth have become the most dear to me. To rescue and make useful has just grown into a way of life. I could say the same about thoughts. This class, well this journey, is part of my gathering of moments in my own history of making. It might sometimes be a review and then sometimes a few more small steps in my process. Because there is always going. Until there isn't.
Let me just clarify my own language system here. How it is that I define small cloth. When I need to explain. My PATCHWORDS.
Collectively they are the most basic components I work with. They all quite different in character but they all fit together in a way, becoming in themselves some sort of personal symbol for natural order.
I always want to explain that my process is never static. That my perception of making and creating and even expressing is a kind of rocking process. Never focused on the thing as much as the change it is subject to. Maybe simply appreciating the beauty in that.
So I have clarified the PatchWords I will be using. And I might want to take them one at a time. Each kind of loose component is developed and used differently in my work. And overtime they become their own language system. Helping me tell my story. For now, just gather some scraps. No agenda really, except to use what you have. I will be back Friday to talk about scale. To try to clarify what I might mean by that.
Just a few notes about this series.
I will be adding some things to the home page, like a resource list and a place for news. I think most folks got here ok. A few latecomers will be expected. I plan to post 2 times a week in the beginning, probably Monday and Friday. We'll see how it goes. I usually announce new class content in my blog posts at Spirit Cloth, if you are subscribed by email, you will see those. Subscribing to the Newsletter here will be just general news about Feel Free. You might always just stop by here to check in once in a while. This is a slow go, no rush.
