Domestic Arts

In January of 2011, Transpositions hosted a week celebrating the domestic crafts.  Home, crafts, and domesticity are important elements of our everyday lives that are in desperate need of some theological reflection.  We had already explored this topic a little bit, with a post on quilting here and a post on cooking there (Oh! and there too!), but we decided that more is needed.  So, we devoted a week (hardly adequate) to this topic with a new post each day.  Here is the line-up:

Sunday (16/1): “Featured Artist: Cosette Cornelius-Bates” by Jim Watkins

Monday (17/1): “Community, Knitting and Creation” by Cosette Cornelius-Bates (aka Cosy)

Tuesday (18/1): “The Art of Preserves” by Anna Blanch

Wednesday (19/1): “Becoming Human Through Cooking” by Jim Watkins

Thursday (20/1): “An Introduction to the Quilts of Gee’s Bend” by Jenn Craft

Friday (21/1): “Radical Homemaking and the Christian Life” by Emily Watkins
