There is so much we can learn about our chosen crafts and so many willing to teach us.
We have more ability to access knowledge from around the world than ever before!
The knowledge that we gain is certainly important but wisdom is powerful.
It is the knowledge that we retain that builds our wisdom.
Love to hear your thoughts on this.
As always our aim is to help inspire you in craft, enjoy what’s on offer this week…
