Here's some inspiration from Works-in-Progress collective member Marnie Saskin. She had a collection called Small Batch Goods, including upcycled quilts (hand lettered with poetry stanzas from her poems) and upcycled cozy things as well as some funky pods at her booth at the Handmade Hamilton show, a juried show with great creations from craftspeople and artisans. It's a two day show and since we arrived late we stayed overnight and Marnie and I did some pickup ad hoc making for fun (upcycled dollclothes) before she made a bunch more handwarmers. And then on Sunday afternoon WIP member Ursa and I made a trip to a Building Roots "Do it Together" workshop in the Moss Street MArket and got to know facilitator Kate and have offered to join her "Plastics Out" workshop next week with a simple hands on beeswax wraps demo, part of building connections with other eco/art groups in the art hive model.
