Membership & The Rabbit Room

By Shigé Clark

As we head toward Hutchmoot: Homebound and the rundown/roundup/hoedown/low-downs are sent out, you may notice some messages to our Rabbit Room members. For folks seeing those messages and wondering what this whole membership thing is about, I’d like to take a moment to tell you what it means to us. After all, there are gym memberships and club memberships—the term can come with a whole host of assumptions or misunderstandings, and it’s often associated with some sort of exclusive access you can buy your way into. But at the Rabbit Room, we approach things with a different spirit. We chose the term “membership” intentionally back in 2013, and I want to take a moment to expound on what it means to be a Rabbit Room member.

The Playroom at Hutchmoot: Homebound

By The Rabbit Room

Hutchmoot: Homebound is not just for adults. Right alongside the deep discussions and bookish hallways is an entire space dedicated to children called the Playroom (not to mention scavenger hunts and kazoos, which are for the enjoyment of children and adults alike). What might a child find in the Playroom, you ask? Well, we are only too glad to tell you.

The Garden at Hutchmoot: Homebound

By The Rabbit Room

The arts go far beyond words, melodies, and paintings. For instance, the art of gardening comprises much of what it means to faithfully cultivate God’s creation as bearers of his image—in Tolkien’s words, to “make still by the law in which we’re made.” One of our favorite parts of last year’s Hutchmoot: Homebound, then, was the garden, where we got to explore these themes in relation to the tangible tending and keeping of living things. This year, we’re excited to welcome to the garden Julie Witmer, Andrew Peterson, and Lanier Ivester.

As It Is

By Tim Joyner

[Editor’s note: Hanging above the mantle in North Wind Manor’s library is a starkly beautiful piece of art made by Tim Joyner, in collaboration with the old North Wind Manor. See, this work is comprised of found elements from the Manor as the Rabbit Room staff knew it from before it was restored: fragments and pieces of a history we wanted to preserve. The finished work is called As It Is, and one of the greatest joys of Opening Week was hearing Tim describe how it came to be, from conception to completion. Here is the text that he read to us.]
