It has a long history and the 20th Century saw the Suffragettes to the Greenham Common women to Riot Grrrl in the UK and beyond using craft and creative skill to get messages across in inventive ways. From hand printing to embroidery to enamelling, creating vehicles for political messages can be fun, engaging and beautiful.
