KINSHIP: World as Archipelago
31 January – 7 March 2023
Online Course by Advaya
We inhabit a world of islands. Despite our separations, cosmic and interpersonal, we are all intimately connected. We are joined at the oceanic root, at the depths of the seabed, and by the salt-stippled space between us. The seas of relation that meditate our entanglements are, in the same breath, domains of impasse traversed only through building arks and yielding to the winds that carry our words and wares in sensuous exchange, or by diving courageously into the unbroken fathoms between and among us.
How can thinking about the ‘world as archipelago’, and thinking with islands and their inhabitants and visitors (not about them), help us explore what kinship means in a socio-politically, but not physically, divided world?
I’m thrilled to share a discount code filipaKIN20 for advaya’s new six-week online course: KINSHIP: World as Archipelago. I will be attending the course, and you’re welcome to join me. Register at kinship-course.com
Hosted and curated by Hannah Close, the course is taught by a group of diverse teachers. They are leading artists, scholars and activists including: David Whyte, Kailea Frederick, David Gange, Angaangaq Angakkorsuaq, Iain McGilchrist, Alastair McIntosh, Himali Singh Soin, Maureen Penjueli, Leny Strobel, Bathsheba Demuth, Craig Santos Perez, and Anna Arabindan-Kesson.
We will navigate towards a unique island of inquiry each week. Through tentacular engagement with self, other, and the more-than-human, we’ll challenge colonial and essentialist notions of relationship so that we might orient ourselves towards healthier ways of being together, ways that honour our profound entanglements with our elemental home.
The course is from 31 January – 7 March 2023, consisting of weekly live sessions on Tuesdays at 6pm UK time (sessions will be recorded). Purchasing the course includes access to weekly readings, resources and activities, and to a dedicated Discord forum to share insights and conversations with fellow participants.

Soon I’ll be sharing with you the online course that I hope will support you even more in your sheepskin tanning journey.
Launching in 2023
Sheepskin Tanning Guidebook
In this guidebook, you will learn how to fat tan your own hair-on sheepskin, using only natural fats, smoke and a lot of elbow grease to transform a raw skin into a beautiful pelt that can be used in various projects.
The book covers the full fat tanning process from start to finish, including how to make your own homemade tanning solution and how to soften the hide both by hand and with a frame.
It is especially helpful to those starting their own tanning journey or looking for information particular to sheepskin tanning.
