It’s not easy being green. Or pink, as the case may be. What role does gender play in our own making, and in the history of art and creating? Spoiler: It ain’t all roses and fluffy yarn.
Art is not just for museums and living rooms - it’s all around us! We discuss murals, graffiti, illicit mosaics, and all sorts of possibly gray area beautifying.
There are a lot of ways to hurt yourself when you’re making stuff. We discuss ergonomics, stupid injuries, proper protection and weird helpful doodads. Plus a question about (not) comparing yourself to others.
Konmari mania makes it into the Make Do studio, as we discuss if and when you should take a long hard look at your stash of craft supplies.
Welcome to the distant future! We’re talking about goals, aims, resolutions, and intentions, and what they can mean. (And which of them sends Tiff hiding under her desk.)
We do a little end of the year wrap-up and talk about things we’ve learned and things we’ve tried. We’d love to hear your thoughts - and we want to know your goals and resolutions for next year! Drop us a line on Twitter or instagram or at [email protected]
Makers gonna make and makers gonna give. What kind of value and values do we place on homemade and handmade gifts?
Tiff has lured Jamie from one studio into another and we talk about finding your voice — more than once — and about her winding path with and without art.
We do some final Inktober check-in, but mostly we talk about the idea that real art comes from pain and real artists don’t dull their pain. (Note: If you’re not feeling up to the heavy stuff right now, you can still listen up to the 09.55 mark!)
We calm some fears about X-acto knives, and talk about writing as a creative pursuit. Do people treat it differently from painting or knitting?
