Crafted With Pride

Queer Craft and Activism in Contemporary Britain

An exploration of the important relationship between craft, queerness, and activism in Britain.

Crafted with Pride is a collection of critical essays, oral histories, and creative responses that explore queer craft and the material cultures of LGBTQ+ activism in Britain since the 1980s. There is a long history of using craft and DIY processes to explore identities and encourage social change and political change, yet these stories remain undocumented and insufficiently researched. Daniel Fountain sheds light on them, bringing together contributions from academics, artists, activists, curators, and heritage professionals. Contributors discuss a range of case studies, including the Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp, the Museum of Transology, the UK AIDS Memorial Quilt, and many more. The book also contains reflections from contemporary creative practitioners, including Matt Smith, Tanoa Sasraku, Sarah-Joy Ford, Rachael House, and Raisa Kabir. The collection draws out crucial connections among craft, queerness, and activism in Britain and will be of interest to queer historians, producers, creatives, and the public more broadly.
