Found Objects are great to play and experiment with since they are everywhere and cost little or nothing! And, best of all, you don't need to worry about "messing up" since you haven't invested loads of money and time in getting them. You can jump in and just start having FUN, no previous experience needed!
I am a Textile Art from South Carolina, USA, who has been showing (and selling) my work since 2002. I am also a madcap improviser who can't resist exploring "what will happen if we. . ."
There are already bazillions of online schools to teach basic handcrafts, etc. but, sadly, too many of them take a dry, "just the facts, ma'am" approach to creation. I like to laugh and joke around in my courses, both online and in real-life. This isn't because I'm not serious about learning, Oh, no! But, it is a lot easier to learn something new when we're relaxed and not worrying about "doing it wrong!"
I use Kompis Cam! Kompis is the Swedish word for buddy and I try to create a friendly atmosphere so you feel like we are just two friends getting together and having fun with textile art. No pressure and not need to be nervous about not doing things "just right." It's just FUN!
