Slow Making expressions

Thinking about slow making I have spent more time looking, feeling, sitting and finding ways of expressing the relationship I have with materials, not trying to make any 'thing' in particular

Writing about 'Slow making' has been hard, it really doesn't come naturally to express my thoughts in words but to both define and share a philisophy of making effectively and seems to help the physical making process.

Speaking to others about the idea has been encouraging, 'Slow Making' is obviously an approach to life and being ready to happen, complementary to the speed of emails and blogs. It is a conversation to have, a live, slow event including a meal and possibly making in community.
