Podcast Episode 35: Perfection + passion projects with Kim Werker
Today on the Dear Handmade Life podcast Delilah and Nicole are drinking a Sorghum Cocktail and talking to writer, editor, maker and speaker Kim Werker. We discuss the culture of perfection online, in art/making and on social media and how Kim’s book Mighty Ugly helps people let go of feeling the need to be perfect. Kim avoids perfection (which she finds to be uninteresting and predictable) in not only her Mighty Ugly book and workshops but in her passion projects as well.
