Craftivism Exhibition Slideshow

Nannas and friends who missed out on seeing the Sydney Knitting Nannas’ first craftivism exhibition last weekend can view our slideshow.

We have been working hard over past weeks to get ready for this event.

Nanna Penny excelled in curating the exhibition and being the MC at the launch. As the Nanna’s choirmaster she also led us in Sing For the Climate sung to the tune of Bella Ciao, a well known Italian folk song.

Nanna Elizabeth’s exquisite knitted and crocheted banners were greatly admired, and her knitted friend Nanna Purl was in demand for selfies. Nanna Bron’s quirky cardboard signs are often hilarious even though the subject is not. Many other Nannas displayed pieces or contributed to major projects, sometimes created in anger and at other times for amusement.

An interview with Nanna Penny on Friday morning on James Valentine’s Breakfast on ABC Radio Sydney encouraged some people not familiar with the Nannas to come along. Conversations about craft led to conversations about the state of the environment.

A big thanks to the NSW Spinners and Weavers Guild for the use of the historic Brush Farm House and for having spinning and weaving demonstrations on Saturday.

It was a fabulous two days.
