Librarian Sarah’s Jan Term class, “Beyond : Self-Sufficiency as a Sustainable Lifestyle,” was quilting in the Library today! 😍🪡

Love this course description: “Homesteaders. Preppers. DIYers. . Many names and many different– sometimes even questionable– motivations, but these trends have the same thing in common: a back-to-basic focus on self-sufficiency. In this fully in-person class, we will survey the various economic, environmental, social, and personal benefits and concerns of self-sufficiency lifestyles. Through diverse readings and robust discussions, we follow how these lifestyles, and the traditional skills inherent in them, can be a means towards personal satisfaction, environmental sustainability, and social equity and justice. A weekly in-class hands-on group workshop will allow for learning and practicing some very basic traditional skills, such as sewing, mending, gardening, and baking. The final class project will be a poster and oral presentation on a traditional craft of choice.”

Just another Jan Term in the SMC Library…🤺🎨😍
