Tinglit of the Beaver tribe: Traditional First Nation Craft, Alaska

Last week I was visiting Tlingit natives of the Beaver tribe who work at Saxman village just outside of Ketchikan, Alaska. Ketchikan counts itself as the rainiest city in the U.S. and there's a reason for that. But it didn't matter, I enjoyed being…

Oh, Make It Magnificent

What a week!



Quite apart from the preparations for the new students starting next week (and the previous ones returning, of course), I've spent a lot of time in the workshops - on Tuesday evening as much to avoid violent thunderstorms as anything else - making up work for the Made In The Middle show, work which shows a completely new way of working for me, eschewing applied - illustrative - narrative for a more 'improvised' narrative of material, being braver about allowing the…

Autumn Leaves

It may only be early September but I've been clearing the falling leaves from the garden, planting out my winter leeks and sowing land cress, radicchio and lettuce for winter salads, as well as poring over the seed catalogues which dropped through the door over the last week. (I'm not really sure why I get printed catalogues by post as I order my seeds and plants from the same companies online!)



This week I've been mostly working on the pieces for "Made in the Middle"…
