I hope this moment finds you peacefully playing with your fiber goodies while you plan holiday menus and gatherings with friends. We’re still on such a high from September’s Fiber College that it’s odd to be playing with the fluff we bought in the sunshine while looking out at the snow.
The success of our Gee’s Bend encounter is still a mainstay of our conversations and a week hasn’t passed without someone asking us “what will we be doing next year?” We’re still sifting through the details but we now know that a cultural context for the arts we learn adds a dimension we hadn’t counted on…and we’ll be fermenting this idea for years to come. In the meantime, we’re starting to think about classes and would love to hear about an instructor you’d like to learn from…let your imagination soar and send us any ideas that come to mind.
In the past weeks we’ve been talking with a group of Somalian refugees and learning about their basket making, henna designing and cooking…what do you think?
P.S. When you get your 2015 calendar, don’t forget to mark September 9-13…Fiber College!
