✨Day 18: Mistake or Lesson✨ There’s nothing like the feeling of panic when you spill paint on a piece of artwork 😅 Sometimes mistakes can be salvaged and reworked, and sometimes you just have to take a deep breath and start over. The trick is knowing which one to choose! But mistakes are a part of life and learning how to deal with them constructively is an important lesson to learn. #MarchMeetTheMaker

a very happy birthday to our dear fiddler and in-house ethnomusicologist Eric ‘the Reverend’ Osborne. He brings the Nova Scotian shanties, he brings the Scandinavian fiddle tunes, he brings the old English ballads and shit no one else knew existed. He’s driven, he’s sharp, he’s the man for the job, and the Hill Spirits project as a whole just wouldn’t be the same without him. And... he’s a damn good friend of mine. . We love you and thank you @therevericosborne . . and as always, we thank our beloved @mal_girl for more of her photographic work capturing the essence of these characters.

✨Day 17: What I’m Working On✨ I recently decided to try making handmade clay pins, and there is definitely a learning curve 😅 Clay is a lot of fun but it’s always a weird feeling stepping outside of your preferred medium. And I keep getting my finger prints on everything I make!! 🙈 This was the first pin I made just to get a feel for the process, and I’m hoping once I get the hang of smoothing out the clay I’ll be able to make some more complex shapes and designs. #MarchMeetTheMaker

⠀ During the Passport to Folk Art Trip to Nepal and Bhutan, travelers visited a paper factory in Bhaktapur where they observed the process of paper making. Lokta paper is a traditional handmade Nepali product prepared from lokta fibre. The lokta fibre is possibly one of the longest and strongest natural fibres, making paper very strong and unique in texture. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ To learn more about our amazing passport to Folk Art Trips visit ⠀ ⠀ https://folkartmarket.org/passport/⁣⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #art #artwork #travel #nepal #passport #vacation#IFAM #myheartisintheart #folkartmarket #folkart #handmade #handcrafted #craft #crafteconomy #folkartists #design #volunteers #love #worldculture #newmexicotrue #santafe⠀ ⠀
