7(ish?) Lessons in Handmade Living

PRESENTED ON FEB 21, 2016
IN ATLANTA @ VOL 28

“I’m that annoying friend that can’t just sit and watch a movie, I knit and watch a movie. But I also make really awesome homemade gifts for everybody so you know– they can only get so mad about it.”

When you hear the word “homestead” what do you think of? I think of the old west in the US of A’s past, of folk heading out into the unknown with just their wits and wares and know-how. In 7(ish?) Lessons in Handmade Living from PechaKucha Night Atlanta Volume 28, speaker Kimberly Coburn would do just fine out there on her own given that she is helping revive the hand-me-down knowledge that was once passed from generation to generation but has somehow stopped now. Sewing, smithy work, growing food, glass making, and more! Tune in to hear Kimberly make the case for bringing back the “old knowledge”!

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Monday, May 9th, 2016.

Living Elsewhere and its Lessons

BY BARBARA KUNTZE
@ VOL 1 ON JUL 04, 2014

Living abroad is more than just a cultural experience, especially after living in 14 cities in 7 countries. Barbara Kuntze, an English language coach and restless Gemini, has always wanted to see more of the world, but traveling is only one way with usually a limited glimpse into the area.  Living and working (and volunteering, such as in the Galapagos) elsewhere, allows one to gain an insight into another world and  (re)assess one's place in life. Lifelong learning continues in the cities and with the people we encounter on the path; the journey is the life!
