Julia is very excited about some workshops she’s been taking lately, and we talk about the ups and downs of taking different kinds of classes to try new things or improve your craft.
Some followup, some crap news, some Pollyanna attitudes. We discuss how we’re dealing with some failures and frustrations.
We took a quiz on creative types, and it spun into a discussion about what that actually means. And if it matters.
HOMEWORK: How would you describe yourself as a creative person?
We tricked our respective husbands into joining us for a conversation about being creative and not, and putting up with us. (And by tricked, we mean we asked them.)
We met up in Atlanta and talked about being good and feeling not good. And how to take a compliment.
Julia has Done A Thing, and so we’re talking about artist residencies and creative retreats, and what those can mean.
We are celebrating our one year podiversary! And what better time to talk to Tiff’s bestie Tanya about the ups and downs of being a cake artist. (Though she might object to that word. )
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.
