There are a couple of constants - patchwork and needlepoint - but I drift in and out of knitting, I've played with ceramics, had a go at basic lino cut printing and made assorted cakes out of felt. I think part of this magpie like behaviour in collecting crafts is an element of panic. I'd love to achieve a real feeling of success with one particular craft, and I think I get a bit panicky that I haven't really found my 'artistic voice'. (Yeah, I know that phrase 'artistic voice' sounds pretentious .... soz) So at the moment I've been leafing through library books about basket making - would that suit me? Is there a local course? I'm also playing with making dolls out of a combination of fabric and papier mache, based on some dolls I saw in a magazine.
I also need to think longer term about paid work. I'd love to make a living through craft. Patchwork and needlepoint are great, but both are slow crafts. They take time. What else could I explore as I'm not ready to start applying for more office based jobs yet.
Hmmm, need to put my thinking cap on.
