Continuing the list of nice projects that happened on April 9th, I should include the one from my friend Liz Kauff. She is interested in Craft and argues that most people avoid making things with hands just because they think they can’t, even without trying. So she created these “crafterventions” where she just goes to public spaces and starts teaching people how to do things like Hand Printing and Knitting.
What I like more about this project is that she’s offering her time to instruct people in something that she’s an expert at. I believe everybody has something to give or teach, so if each one of us did at least one small intervention like that, people would be more skilled and confident.

And if you want to learn any craft, check Liz’s website: Craftervention . She has the cutest tutorials ever! And yes, we use the same table at our interventions. It just happened to be the most convenient (read cheap) one! : )
