5 months. Gulp.

In 5 months I shall hopefully be graduating from a photography degree, yay! But like so many panic is setting in and I dreading the inevitable, what now? Gulp. My tutor reminded me of this video of Alan Watts last week. The first time I saw it I found it hugely inspiring and that seems to still resonate in me. Although I have a feeling that I have perhaps chosen a career path to self-destructive financial woes, which does fill me with dread,  I ultimately hope to be happy and I am excited about my creative future. A geography teacher I had at school once asked me what I wanted to do when I left school. I replied saying that  I’d like to go to Art College and study photography. With no sarcasm in her tone she replied to my answer with, “ohh, that’s an easy option isn’t it”… That conversation has stuck with me, partly because of her sheer ignorance and partly because I detested the woman. So take a moment to watch this inspiring video and remember if all else fails we could all become geography teachers, I hear that’s an easy job option 😉

48 hour Stitch Lounge

48 hour Stitch Lounge is Edinburgh’s first pop-up Stitch Lounge! One weekend of making, stitching, creating, discussing and inspiring, the weekend is free and open to everyone, regardless of experience. See below for more info and join 48 hour Stitch Lounge Facebook page for updates and news. Spread the word, it’s a very exciting project!

Edinburgh’s first ever ‘Pop-up” Stitch Lounge : 21st & 22nd May 2011, 10am-10pm

As part of the ‘No Concessions’ fashion season at Inspace, the Stitch Lounge is taking over the laboratory, bringing ‘makers’ and ‘players’ together for one weekend only to create some fast fashion. We’ve patterns at the ready, 10 Singer sewing machines raring to go, plus hundreds of meters of white fabric and a ton of clothes to customise. Everyone is encouraged to join in, experiment and get those little hands busy.

Punctuating the weekend, and just in time for Afternoon Tea too, the Stitch Lounge will host informal round table discussions by fashion industry specialists on Saturday and Sunday at 4:00 pm. Work in progress will go on display at 8:00 pm on Saturday 21st, and then on Sunday 22nd at 8:00 pm the weekend will conclude with an off-the-wall runway show, bubbly and live music. The shows about to start…

Supported by Singer. Part of the ‘No Concessions’ fashion|technology season.
