News & Notes from Cameron

Beginning - March 2018

"Beginning means exploration, selection, development, a potent vitaility not yet limited...going back to the beginning is seeing ourselves mirrored in others' work, not in the result but in the process...I find it intriguing to look at early attempts in history...to experience vicariously the exhilaration of accomplishment reached step by step. This is learning." Anni Albers, On Weaving 

 

What a great introduction to How String Changed the World: An Exploration of Fiber, Culture and Human Ingenuity, as educators explored the origins of textiles in a recent createIt seminar at my ARTSgarage teaching studio. I'm thinking about how to restructure this hands-on seminar  into a keynote speech for a 2019 weaving conference - which means lots of  "exploration, selection and development!"
