Cottage Industry

In the past most things surrounding us were locally made or passed on to us by previous generations. Mass production lack a warmth of tradition, stories, narrative values, work and technical skill that goes into producing something that is entirely unique and very special, a holder of intangible value and meaning.


Making things and doing stuff. Making stuff and doing things.


Maiia:I grew up in a regional community- ya didn't have shops, and didn't waste petrol or cash on driving to the city. 




 A)  You got a bita brains about you, improvised or traded with someone else nearby who was perhaps faster or more proficient in that area.  


B)  We went without.         


C)  We waited - saved up pennies and put into play plans that would enable us to get to the goal later on.




Often a giant step forward means looking back.  In this Cottage Industry Forum, Maiia and Leeza will look at some of the practicalities of creative work.
