Revolutionary Makers: Watch highlights from last month’s Women of the World Festival in Hull here, where our mass craftivist installation –  designed to create conversations and actions around gender equality –  launched as part of Hull City of Culture.  See me talking about it on video here and listen to an interview with me as part of the  Radio 4 Woman’s Hour panel live in Hull during the event here.  I also talked about this project at  38 Degrees Live, Lewes after the event and now,  by request, I will be running a Craftivism starter workshop in Lewes, UK on Saturday 22 April, more info here. More on craftivism in the UK here.
