Hello Fellow Crafties. Dalek Ahead
I'm lucky, in that my day job allows me to be creative; I'm a graphic designer.
But I've always been crafty and artistic.
I've tried my hand at pottery, both wheel and handbuilding, dabbled in jewelry making, knitting, painting, 3D art, paper crafts, sewing, video & video editing, writing, photography, ... I'm willing to try anything.
Mostly I like art & crafts to also serve a purpose, but that can be a pretty broad definition too. Most of my pottery were useful pieces, not just decoration. I belong to a craft group and we made/donated catnip mice to help an organisation that deals with strays and ferals. I love to teach/share new crafts to help people connect with others, express themselves, get out of their routine and learn to "let go".
BUT - I also do some stuff just because!
A few years ago I made a Christmas Dalek ( mostly paiper mâshé ) for friends of mine. He comes out every year at Christmas time. I documented some of the Dalek build here: [scurring.blogspot.ca]
