Learner – a hobby, personality trait, an addiction

I’m into learning. I’m a learner – it’s a hobby, it’s a personality trait, it’s an addiction.

This is an itty-bitty blog post about some workshops for tall people also known as adults.

2012_11_18Chalkle – Wellington
You can approach Chalkle as a student wanting to learn something and/or as a teacher wanting to share something.

“Chalkle° began in July 2012 over a cup of coffee in Wellington New Zealand, by Silvia Zuur and Linc Gasking. They observed, that many of their friends were curious to continue learning outside formal education and wanted to pick up practical, real-life and creative skills.
The name “chalkle°” is an invented verb from “chalk” used on blackboards and street art to share ideas.
A vibrant learning community developed overnight, with hundreds of classes ranging from astronomy to worm farming. It turns out everyone has at least one thing they are really good at. “You don’t have to be a qualified world leading expert to inspire a beginner”, says Silvia.Classes are demand-driven and take place in real life locations city-wide. Each one can be independently attended with no long-term commitment.”

You may like to vote for Silvia Zuur in BeCause, so that some flash harry film director makes a doco about her. Click here for more info.

The Kinfolk community gatherings are an invitation to engagement: engaging with new skills, new relationships, and a refreshed understanding of the physical world around us. We’ll focus on cooking, gardening, the culture of the table, and other hands-on practices we find life-enriching. Greta from Vela Images and Shaye from On My Hand (Vintage Props and Styling) produced the last Kinfolk event in Tauranga, Aotearoa and I was lucky enough to go. Here’s what I have to say about Kinfolk meeting Willowdene. Greta and Shaye will continue to bring Kinfolk Events to Aotearoa so stay tuned.
