Join the Circus!

“I’m thinking of putting together a circus show this summer (possibly early fall), with circus-type entertainment (juggling, acrobats, magic tricks, etc.).  There will probably be a family show as well as a more “grown-up” show with burlesque, contortionists, etc., and possibly some circus-art workshops earlier in the day.  I’m hoping that we can get some circusy music and food as well.  If anyone’s interested in performing in, helping organize, or contributing to the show in any way (or knows someone who might be) let me know!  The more people who are involved, the more awesome it will be.”

First Freeskool Skill Share Day a Rollicking Success

Despite the stormy weather, many folks made it out to the skill share day on Saturday, May 14th. Huge thanks to all the teachers and facilitators who offered workshops, as well as the participants who made the classes dynamic. I invite your comments, thoughts, suggestions, feedback, etc. And if YOU are thinking of organizing a Madison Skill Share Day, please get in touch with us! Anyone can organize a skill share day. I will be putting together a brief “how-to” based on how I did it, one of many ways a skill share day can be put together. Here are some photo highlights from the Bat/Bird/Bee House building workshop, Yarn Bombing, and Freechoir/String Band Jam.

Thanks for the worms…

And all the other great workshops at the Transition Madison Area (TMA) Skillshare today. There was zine-making, permaculture, vermiculture (worm compost!), hula hooping, slow money, seed starting, massage, and more! Looking forward to making connections with all of you for future free classes and groups.
