The New Everyday Life
I just got back from the desert after a very successful first session of The New Everyday Life. Here is a photo of the compound next to headquarters where some of the action went down. Wells' bus full of leather goods was pretty dang inspiring, as was his two pens full of Nubian and Pygmy goats. I am SO getting a pair of goats someday. Katie's rather strong herbal beers were ultra delicious. We tried bottles of Ginger and Honey Basil. Chantal made us fish tacos to munch while meditating upon our huge bonfire out on BLM land next to her veggie diesel Vanagon, and Andrea gave us a tour of her newest knitted works that will soon ship to Sadie Coles. I taught Japanese stab stitch, pamplet stitch, and long stitch. So it was a weekend full of art and inspiration.
I feel confident we will plan another session. Here is the itinerary Andrea cooked up for this first series, and this will be the site where we hopefully post some of the photos taken of the work sessions. So check back here for updates:
