2021 January Design Challenge #9

2021 January Challenge #9

Every January for the last nine years, I have challenged myself to 
sketch 14 new designs in 14 days.
One or two of the designs make it into my line of handbags.
I start in my sketchbook - doodling and playing with different ideas.   
When I find one I like, I draft a pattern, choose the fabrics and make the prototype.   
I photograph it and put it on my Facebook page.  
The next morning I get up and do the same thing - for 14 days in a row!
A fun time to "play" with no pressure of an upcoming fair or show.

Something new and fun for our community!

Blank Canvas, Yellow Feather Gallery and Helen's Daughters Studio is launching an #BarabooArtisanChallenge - January can be a long long month. Consider joining us! (Some of us have been doing this for years.)
Challenge Your Inner Artisan
Are you a painter, a sculptor, a baker, a singer, or maybe a fiber artist?
Do you enjoy crafting and creating or have the desire to learn a new craft?
Are you three to 103?
Yellow Feather Gallery, Helen’s Daughters Studio, and Blank Canvas Arts have come together to ring in the new year with an artistic bang and we need you!
We are challenging the artisans in Baraboo and the surrounding areas to fill social feeds with art of every kind. From Jan 1 to Feb 15, post your creations, accompanied with the #barabooartisanchallenge hashtag on Facebook or Instagram.
Post often!
This challenge is a great way to showcase the creative abilities of our community and bring attention to your work. With the unfortunate events of the past year, many craft shows, art fairs, and other events were canceled, and as a result, many artisans have struggledto get their work in front of an audience.
We also want to use this opportunity as a way to encourage the Baraboo and surrounding communities to embrace their own inner artist and learn a new craft. There is no age limit.
Showing support for your fellow #barabooartisanchallenge sharers is easy, fast and often free. Just click the like button, leave encouraging comments, or share posts to spread the work of these talented people.
So, get those colored pencils out, record yourself reciting a poem, show us your quilts, handbags, and cross-stitch, bake a masterpiece and share your creations with us all. Use the hashtag #barabooartisanchallenge and help Deb, Char, and Brett brighten up those dark winter days with the beauty of art!
