Notes from Unravel


Yesterday I gave a talk at Unravel: A Festival of Knitting in lovely Farnham. I talked about how you can make craftivism your own and help other people with it. During the talk, I noted that I would be placing links to what I was talking about here, so here we go.

In some cases, I’ve linked directly to a person’s work or to a news article, rather than the actual site where I got the photo from.


Weren’t there? Well, you can watch the clip below for a 6-second version or investigate any of the links below! (Disregard -or rock out to- the coffee shop music in the background!)
