The Well-fed Artist: Food in the Midst of Famine
July 2010

Announcing the first meeting of The Well-fed Artist, a Meetup group intended to subvert the idea that artists have to starve, to suffer for their art. Artists can and do live rich, full lives. How? What does it take? How can they provide nourishment for themselves and one another?

Hosted by coach and fiber artist Gika Rector, this Meetup group explores what it takes individually and as a community to be well-fed.

Date and time

PomegranateThursday, July 29, 2010
7–9 pm

Description

Each meeting of The Well-fed Artist will be loosely structured around a theme, and will also include time for individual reflection and conversation.

The theme for our first meeting will be Food in the Midst of Famine. How do we practice our craft and feed ourselves when resources are scarce?

Participants are invited to bring something to share—a snack, an idea, or a show-and-tell.

Learn to make nuno felt, a fun and fast approach to an ancient fiber medium. Lay luscious merino wool out on a piece of loosely woven fabric. With soap and water and a variety of movements—rolling, throwing, rubbing—the fabric becomes felted with your unique design. This technique is well suited for making garments.
