Spanish journalist and film-maker Xurxo Martínez emailed me a link to his new short documentary about yarn bombing, and I finally just made time to watch it. It’s one of the best crafts-related documentaries I’ve seen, despite the rough subtitles. He manages to touch upon everything from art to craft, fun to activism, tradition to subversion, and none of it seems rushed or glossed over. The artists he interviewed spoke beautifully about their art, the movement, their cities, and the people they encounter. I just loved it. Give it a watch and let me know what you think:
I’m a writer, editor, crafter and speaker. My new book, Make It Mighty Ugly: Exercises And Advice For Getting Creative Even When It Ain't Pretty, is available for pre-order, so that's pretty exciting if you're me (and maybe if you're you) (probably if you're you) (just saying). Here's a handy list of other things about me.
I write here about creativity, business, crafts, publishing and books.
My newsletter’s pretty cool.
I pin stuff.
