There seems to be something in the air at the moment as making and the maker are in the public eye at the moment. If you’d like a great day out with all the buzz of people making and creating then go to the Mini Maker Faire in Brighton in September. Here’s a link to their website http:// makerfairebrighton.com/about/ or if you are a maker yourself then contact them and here’s a link http://www.makerfairebrighton.com/call-to-makers-2012
Now that I have solved most of the problems in the making of a large project I have time to think about other things and enjoy the actual making process. I realise how much I love being absorbed in the hands on activity, especially once the difficult hurdles are crossed.
I’m looking forward to tutoring at the Textile Study Group Summer School this July when making is the topic. My workshop is ‘Magic in Making’ when we shall concentrate on the joy of making based on personal collections.
