How does hobby and craftivism bring about the means and conditions through which alternative values and ways of living can be imagined and shared, and practical examples for change defined and materialised? There is an increasing resurgence of amateurs and makers who, informed by peers, individual life experiences and expertise, are quietly active as they open up new channels of value and exchange by engaging in alternative craft economies and harnessing assets in often surprising, productive ways.  Tarlen here will talk based on her experience managing an alternative bookstore, hobby clubs and an annual craft festival, Crafty Days.
