Last night, at somewhat short notice, I stepped into a breach and gave a St Michael’s Lecture. The Lectures have been running since 1992 and have had some really interesting and high-profile speakers. As an alumna, I am now alongside such luminaries as Prof Grace Davie, the Very Rev Jeffrey John, and Ben Bradshaw MP.
I took the opportunity to crystallise many of my thoughts around what Particulart has become. I liked the title so much, I adopted it for the work.
I also gave some examples of other craftivism: tricoteuses and yarn-bombed tanks. Knitters are not to be provoked!
