The Craft Wisely Podcast, Episode 2: Finding Meaning

Each week, a group of students from the Craft Wisely course will invite listeners into the discussions taking place in our classroom. The conversation starts with ideas derived from our texts and our practice, and ranges into the podcasters' interpretations and experience.

The Dust Storms -- Ariel, Adrea, Lynn, and Anna -- lead us on a whirlwind (see what I did there?) trip through the various meanings that get attached to handmade items, the materials used to make them, the people that undertake the craft, and the process they undergo.  Is ripping out your work liberating or crazy?  How did Native Americans and English colonists differ in their perception of cloth and its making?  Get caught up and blown away by this week's podcast!
