Over the past few weeks I've had some dates with Meka who is teaching me how to make baskets! I met her through Swapsity, a site where you can swap items and skills based on a rating system of different users. So far I have finished the base and worked around the corner to start making the sides. It's going to be a fruit bowl because right now my fruit bowl is a giant rectangular Pyrex ugly thing! Its hard surface isn't exactly kind on the tender flesh of the fruit.
I graduated from the University of Waterloo in Environmental Science/Ecology in April 2011. Through luck and people's help I became a barista at a new independent cafe in Toronto. This wholesome activity promotes my creative process for art, craft, and photography. Among other things, I have delved into beading, sewing, painting, digital art, sculpture, home furniture and accessories, leathercraft, knitting, woodworking, photography, ceramics, cooking, baking, and gardening.
