It’s been almost exactly two years since we launched our own learning platform for the School of SweetGeorgia. Celebration time! Read on to find out more about the latest developments … and celebrate with a “Back to School” special!
If you haven’t heard, the School of SweetGeorgia is our online membership based fiber art school where we build courses and community. Our focus is on sharing our passion for yarn and textile art while creating new dyers, weavers, spinners and knitters. In the years since the start of this project, we have built a video-based online school that includes more than twenty courses and workshops with a team of excellent, knowledgeable and practicing artisans and teachers.
The School of SweetGeorgia focuses on creating educational content for the specialty fiber art. The art of fiber encompasses more than knitting and crocheting – it encompasses everything from making fibers for conversion into textiles, to dyeing yarn, fabric or fiber, spinning yarn, to applying that yarn in knitting and crocheting, weaving and tapestry. This includes exploring color theory, visual design, and other creative skills including brainstorming, reflection, planning, and recording.
THE FIBER ARTS ARE A CONTINUUM OF CRAFTS
The journey to save our souls
Our goal for the school is to demonstrate that these crafts are not independent silos, but are interrelated and represent a continuum of practices.
The School of SweetGeorgia takes the letters from SOS and merges them into a new symbol that represents connecting and participating in an ongoing, cumbersome journey. SOS is an internationally recognized code signal that is used to call for help. It is an abbreviation for “save our souls” and is used here to evoke how color, craft and making of things can be balm for the soul and refuge for our creative spirits. SOS also implies how we are here to provide assistance on our journey.
