When Your Friends Are Right

Best foot forward

Friends help you put your best foot forward.

Don’t you just hate it when your friends are right? Especially when it means you’ve got to dig a little deeper and do what you’re capable of doing. When they see your capacity to show up, to produce, to do great work, even when you are about to settle for good enough. When you are about to be a little lazy and deliver a product that’s not as good as it ought to be.

On our own, it’s easy to make excuses. It’s easy to say there isn’t enough time, or talent, or resources. It’s tempting to hide behind the excuses and play it safe, take the easy route.

But a good friend, a wise mentor, someone who sees you for who you are, will not let you show up that way, any more than they’d let you go out half dressed. They are not oblivious to your faults, but they treasure your talents and won’t let you forget them. …more

Creative Play: Felting with a Beach Ball
June 1, 2011

Date and time

Felt around a ballThursday, June 1, 2011
6–9 p.m.

Description

Learn a fun and contemporary approach to an ancient fiber medium. Wrap a beach ball with luscious and colorful merino wool and cover it with pantyhose. Add soap and water, and bounce: the wool becomes a felted sphere. The sphere can then become a bag or purse or vessel, perhaps even a hat.

With vibrant and interesting textures to play with, felting is a rich creative experience for the senses. Bring an old towel, a plastic bag, and your curiosity. All other materials are included in the registration fee. No experience necessary.

Fee
