I am not so chatty this morning as life is busy but I wanted to follow up a bit on my two recent posts on Slow cloth. Over on Red Thread Studio Elaine Lipson has responded to me about her ideas for slow cloth.
Obviously I have jumped on this because it is something I have been thinking about for a while and wondered if others had been thinking along the same lines. Fiona of Love Fibre confirmed this and in her comment posted two great links to like minded blogs. The first is to Frost Art which is the blog of textile artist who speaks about slow making in her work and Slow Making describes itself as “aims to be a starting point to encourage makers and designers to discuss and consider the implications of Slow philosophy in our areas of design, craft and art.”
Linn of the Embroideress has responded in very thoughtful manner point out that her process is shaped by the intended usage of a piece. Other responses are over on Magpies wanderings and another on Reading and stitching in IL Aurora of Foxy Art Studio also written about her thoughts.
Late edit: Jerry has just written a very thoughtful post and raised some interesting qustions about slow craft over on his blog
