This is our third Pussyhat knitting workshop, our official launch and the last pussyhat workshop for the year. Come along and start your pussyhat with us.  Join a group of friendly knitters and creators and learn to knit or start a new project. Knitting is good for your health and you can read why here.  You might want to read about the Pussyhat Project that started in the US, or you can read our brief overview here. We’re also interested in craftivism, a term coined by Betsy Greer which is about using your creativity to make the world a better place.  The pussyhat is a perfect example of craftivism.  The pink knitted hat became a symbol of protest; a symbol that women weren’t happy with Donald Trump and how he was talking about them in the lead up to the 2016 US presidential elections, and so they knitted, and crocheted, and sewed… and resisted. And they wore their symbols of protest on January 21st to create a sea of pink during the Washington March, and in marches around the world. You can see their wonderful creations here.

Shared Threads-83Here’s what our workshops look like.  They’re mostly women and children (but we welcome men) of all ages having fun, sharing ideas and drinking tea.  There’s always a mix of beginners and more experienced knitters, and because our motto is “knitting community together”, that means no one gets left out and no one gets left behind.
