The Use of the Hands

10 Mar

Renate Hiller speaks about the use of the hands in fiber arts and it’s connection to community and the cosmos. Beautiful.

From my favorite radio show On Being.

…in handwork, in transforming nature we also make something truly unique that we have made with our hands, stitch by stitch, that maybe we have chosen the yarn, we have even spun the yarn — even better, and that we have designed. And when I do that, I feel whole. I feel I am experiencing my inner core because it’s a meditative process. You have to find your way; you have to listen with your whole being. And that is the schooling that we all need today.
