Weaver’s Bottom, Potter’s Wrist

After doing some wheel throwing in my ceramics class on Thursday, my arms –  from shoulders to fingertips – were aching with a dull pain. Earlier in the week I was experiencing sore hamstrings from tapestry weaving. As I do whenever I experience such symptoms, I did some googling and discovered the term Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI). Some of the pages I found relating to textile processes and RSI were kind of amusing; however, I know it’s not funny when you’re in pain from doing something you love.
