Where's Art? with Annie Dugan: the art of craft

JLS Photography - Alaska/Flickr

There's always been some ... tension .... between art and "crafts."  Not "craft," mind you, but "crafts."

Resolve the tension with coffee and eggs Sunday at the Virtual Fika & Slöjd: Folk Art Eggs session, Sunday at 1pm courtesy of the Nordic Center.

Explore the craft of art and the art in crafts while learning how to make painted, folk art Easter eggs.  Or BYOC (bring your own craft).

And if you really want to explore the art of the craft, check out the BBC's The Repair Shop on Netflix.  

Watch restoration artists/craftspeople restore heirlooms, sometimes from decades of neglect.  It's sure to make you want to tackle a long-postponed repair - or at least hire someone to complete it!

Lisa Johnson started her broadcast career anchoring the television news at her high school and spinning country music at KWWK/KOLM Radio in Rochester, Minnesota. She was a reporter and news anchor at KTHI in Fargo, ND (not to mention the host of a children's program called "Lisa's Lane") and a radio reporter and anchor in Moorhead, Bismarck, Wahpeton and Fergus Falls.Since 1991, she has hosted Northland Morning on KUMD. One of the best parts of her job includes "paying it forward" by mentoring upcoming journalists and broadcasters on the student news team that helps produce Northland Morning. She also loves introducing the different people she meets in her job to one another, helping to forge new "community connections" and partnerships.Lisa has amassed a book collection weighing over two tons, and she enjoys reading, photography, volunteering with Animal Allies Humane Society and fantasizing about farmland. She goes to bed at 8pm, long before her daughter, two cats, or three dogs.
