Rank #1: Make Do 33: And All That Class
Julia is very excited about some workshops she’s been taking lately, and we talk about the ups and downs of taking different kinds of classes to try new things or improve your craft.
Rank #2: Make Do 32: Failing Forward
Some followup, some crap news, some Pollyanna attitudes. We discuss how we’re dealing with some failures and frustrations.
Rank #3: Make Do 31: What’s Your Type?
We took a quiz on creative types, and it spun into a discussion about what that actually means. And if it matters. HOMEWORK: How would you describe yourself as a creative person?
Rank #4: Make Do 30: I Know You Are But What Am I?
We tricked our respective husbands into joining us for a conversation about being creative and not, and putting up with us. (And by tricked, we mean we asked them.)
Rank #5: Make Do 29: Reunited And It Feels So... Good?
We met up in Atlanta and talked about being good and feeling not good. And how to take a compliment.
Rank #6: Make Do 28: "The Artist Is Resident"
Julia has Done A Thing, and so we’re talking about artist residencies and creative retreats, and what those can mean.
Rank #7: Make Do 27: Take The Cake
We are celebrating our one year podiversary! And what better time to talk to Tiff’s bestie Tanya about the ups and downs of being a cake artist. (Though she might object to that word. )
Rank #8: Make Do 26: ”Do Women Have To Be Naked To Get Into The Met Museum?”
It’s not easy being green. Or pink, as the case may be. What role does gender play in our own making, and in the history of art and creating? Spoiler: It ain’t all roses and fluffy yarn.
Rank #9: Make Do 25: Out and About
Art is not just for museums and living rooms - it’s all around us! We discuss murals, graffiti, illicit mosaics, and all sorts of possibly gray area beautifying.
Rank #10: Make Do 24: When Art Really Is Pain
There are a lot of ways to hurt yourself when you’re making stuff. We discuss ergonomics, stupid injuries, proper protection and weird helpful doodads. Plus a question about (not) comparing yourself to others.
