I am a proud member of the Feminist Craft Corner collective, created by Miki Yamada Foster. I have contributed things like a banner, tea, teaching, and my body. Miki’s statement from the first exhibition of FCC:
Miki Yamada Foster’s Feminist Craft Corner is a public access television show and an installation of collaborative Do-It-Yourself (DIY) experiments in crafting and technology. The public access show invites the audience to question their assumptions about how we speak about technology and who can speak for it. The episodes enact a queer staging of media production for the purposes of educating its audience about the intersections of DIY, crafting and technology. These interactive craft pieces encourage participants to playfully engage with objects through the activation of a queer and feminist framework, produced through the selection of content and the construction of form.
My crafting practice before meeting FCC included quilting, felting, and sewing. I still do those things, but now I do them with revolutionary intent. Rayne Sara, my FCC character, can be found on Facebook
