What does it mean to earn your living as a maker? Can you feed yourself? This episode looks at the renowned hand-weaver, Janet Phillips, who has done just that for more than 50 years. It celebrates her half-century at the loom and asks what it takes to achieve this.
I provide a full transcript, pictures, links to the work of the contributors to these podcasts, and a list of resources that have inspired me on my website at: www.hapticandhue.com/listen.
If you would like to sign up for your own link to the podcasts as they are released, for extra information and a chance to access the free textile gifts that I’ll be offering for each podcast in this series then please fill out the very brief form here or find it on the Haptic and Hue's Listen page above.
If you are interested in a long read or two, or want to know why and how cloth speaks to us then you can find articles at www.hapticandhue.com/read
You can follow Haptic and Hue on Instagram @hapticandhue on Facebook or Linked In, under the Haptic and Hue name. You can see more of my work and that of other makers there or on the website.
And if you’ve got a great idea for Series Two (coming in the New Year!) then drop me a line via the website.
Have fun and enjoy your own making practice or just listening to the chatter of cloth!
