A YEAR OF _
BACKGROUND & INSPIRATION
For the last year, I've looked forward to daily postings of California artist @windychien and her Year of Knots project. I was inspired by her joy and commitment towards the exploration and experimentation of knots.
Around the same time Windy's year-long project was drawing to a close, I was on the phone with a friend talking about recharging and reconnecting with a craft through a hundred days of one craft. In essence, this would also be part free exploration, discipline, meditation, fun and learning.
APRIL 15 2017 - APRIL 14, 2018
I'll be kicking off A Year Of _ on April 15 and I'd love for us all to join together. Pass it on and share on.
TIPS TO GET STARTED
I love the simplicity yet beauty of Windy's project. Even as an observer, it was so rewarding to watch the flexibility of her knots.
1. Pick a craft or medium that you love or is curious about. (Make it fun, keep it simple.)
2. Make some thing with that craft every day for a year. (10-30 mins a day so is doable yet allow you to reconnect and discover.)
For me, craft covers a broad range of things and what's essential is picking some thing you love and will bring you joy doing every day. So, it can be a year of...tassels, smoothies, mini-weavings, cocktail recipe, activism, water color, origami, line drawing, etc.
