Activist Knitting: An American Tradition

Since our country’s founding, knitters have found a way to use their craft as a form of political expression. From colonists breaking laws to produce their own fibers and fabrics, to women’s groups producing knitwear for hundreds of World War II soldiers, to contemporary fibers artists who use technology to create and share interactive protest art. In this workshops, not only will you hear about a few powerful examples of activist American knitting, you’ll also get to pick up the needles yourself in a hands-on lesson. No experience necessary, materials will be provided; skilled knitters are welcome to bring materials and join us for a knitting circle.
