Description

Invited speaker on panel of educators and crafts people

The day long event explored the continuing importance of craft in education in three spheres

• Recovery – craft as a tool for rethinking a return to school
• Developing an anti-racist approach to craft education
• Craft as a cross-curricular bridge

My contribution "But you can’t knit science…Using knit to celebrate the use of craft in a wider curriculum" was well received. I also chaired three breakout discussion sessions.
