The Home Arts


This weekend I will be participating in The Home Arts Program. Where else? At home! There really is such a thing called Home Arts! As you may have guessed, the home arts are crafts or art practices that can occur in the home, such as cooking, sewing, knitting, crocheting, book binding, wood working, home decoration and more. With the industrial revolution in full swing during the mid-1800s, it was thought that the traditional crafts listed above would provide workers with far more personal satisfaction than was possible with factory jobs. Thus began the Arts and Crafts Movement at the turn of the century, through  and including the 1920s. 
Home Arts start with MUSIC!

The arts I will be practicing this weekend include playing my ukulele, crocheting my Virus Shawl and laying out some new tiki tunics to sew with all the beautiful fabric I've been acquiring. I may even bake something!

It will be nice to have a weekend at home instead of our usual running around and frantic schedule. Have a wonderful weekend my friends!
