The Craft Wisely Podcast, Episode 3: Crafting for a Cause

Each week, a group of students from the Craft Wisely course will invite listeners into the discussions taking place in our classroom. The conversation starts with ideas derived from our texts and our practice, and ranges into the podcasters' interpretations and experience.

The Arachnias (Ella, Natasha and Kate) meditate on the connections between craft, education and community in this podcast (delayed due to technical reasons, hence presented out of order).  Engage with theory, practice, and outreach as the Arachnias discover children knitting, discuss whether adding handcrafts to elementary classrooms would be discouraging or beneficial to students and their instructors, and share the first-person experiences of knitters and those who receive the benefit of their energies..
