Online Symposium: The Domestic Arts

While the term “domestic arts” might sound like a contradiction in terms these days, there are many young people working to make the home–domesticity–a place of production and beauty, rather than merely a place of vulgar consumption.  Hence my friends over at Transpositions, a blog about Christianity and the Arts hosted by the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, have put together an online symposium on Domestic Arts.

I am among the contributors, reflecting on my habit of reclaiming wood and restoring tools.

My friend Bethany also has a wonderful reflection on sewing and making fabric by hand.

I hope you’ll take a look, post a comment, and think seriously about the significance of the craft(s) you practice.
