Curious About Craft, Craftspace, 2009
Craftspace created a mobile exhibition travelling to 40 wards in Birmingham from Sept 2010 to March 2011, giving local people the opportunity to see and take part in craft with a difference. Curious about Craft explored craftivism – the contemporary approach which uses craft to encourage connections between people and to express the issues they care about. They invited me to run some darning events in the van. Met great people, encountered a very fine and difficult hole (a tiny burnt hole from ironing in a wedding sari) and heard some lovely stories about craft and making by grandmas and uncles.
