I have experimented across several artistic media, as an artist and teacher, but I have always been particularly drawn to the crafts, such as ceramics, basketry, and fiber. This “soft stuff” has enthralled me, and also helped me to make sense of intuitively felt connections between activism and feminism in education. My research into and teaching about craft has been inspired, in part, by Glenn Adamson’s definition that encompassed objects, along with deeper approaches, attitudes, and actions of craftspeople. His writing and my own work have cultivated an integrated and collective sense of making, talking, and writing about craftwork that has informed my work and the resources I use when teaching young people.
