Crafting with Feminism at GeekGirlCon ’16
There was plenty to do at GeekGirlCon ‘16–browse the expanded exhibitor’s hall, attend the numerous amazing panels, and socialize at meet-ups. But my favorite activity on each day was Crafting with Feminism, aka meeting up with a few dozen other attendees and Bonnie Burton to create superheroine wrist cuffs and tampon buddies.
Bonnie Burton is the author of several books, including Star Wars and Warcraft crafting titles, and her latest is Crafting with Feminism: 25 Girl-Powered Projects to Smash the Patriarchy. With Bonnie’s step-by-step instructions, you can create a Drinking Dames Flask, Power Panties, or, like we did, Superheroine Wrist Cuffs and Tampon Buddies!
Both workshops at GeekGirlCon ‘16 were a hit and filled with attendees of all ages and genders enjoying the chance to do some hands-on, patriarchy-smashing crafting. Check out the photos below of our experiences. If I caught you in one of my shots, comment and let us know!
