DIY Discussions is back with a vengeance in June & July! We’re still working out the details of all the fun stuff we’ll be doing and chatting about, but in the meantime get these dates in your diaries.. Also contact us if you have some ideas you’d like to share!

Please note the following CHANGE OF DATE! Wednesday 27th June 7.30pm onwards, please email us for the location: Join us to share skills on DIY tattooing (Stick ‘n’ Poke) and give each other summer haircuts. We will be discussing “Survivor’s in Solidarity with Prison Abolition” a project started by an anarcha-feminist group in the Philippines and contributing to a zine they are putting together. More info here.

14th, 15th, 16th July, time to be confirmed: We will be holding our July discussion at the Coal Action Scotland action camp “Take Back the Land” we don’t know exactly which evening it will be held on yet, but most likely it will be the 14th, 15th or 16th. We’ll confirm this nearer the time so keep an eye out for that. What we hope to be doing at the camp is skill-sharing camp based skills like how to make a fire – from chopping wood with different types of axes to lighting the fire. We’ll also hold a discussion on overcoming machismo and including feminist voices in direct action situations.  More info on the camp, what it’s all about and how to get to it here.

As always everyone is welcome to these events and we look forward to meeting you. Bring what you hope to find!

A tank that has been "yarn bombed"

The next DIY Discussion is happening on the 9th of November from 7.30pm. Please come!

We will be chatting about pornography and making things with wool.

There are so many different things you can do with wool – knitting, crocheting and felting to name just a few! And wool crafts aren’t just for a certain section of society – anyone can enjoy wool regardless of gender or age, and it can be put to many creative uses such as “yarn bombing”  an art form involving the pairing of activism…and knitting!

Please bring anything you’d like to share, such as interesting things to read, craft bits and bobs, or simply your thoughts, feelings and ideas.

We hope to see you there!
