Why? Because I went to meet all the frickin’ brilliant girls who organise the Craftivist Collective. Among them was Carrie Reichart, who describes herself as a ‘renegade potter’. I know her from that Observer piece on craftvism, but had no idea it was her until I’d left.
What a bloody inspiring evening, meeting girls who like to craft and who give a shit about domestic violence and politics and all sorts of fascinating stuff.
