I have been working on Maternal Health (Deaths) for a bit now. My focus is ‘how to improve service delivery’ in rural-remote areas. One part of the project dealt with menstruation – and led to this event. See more here: http://craftvic.org.au/craft-cubed/satellite-events/workshops-events/diy-pads
Its being organized by a few former students of mine.
The interesting thing here is that Craft Victoria – is an organization of crafts people in Victoria (Australia). But Crafts people here are more like artists – and usually skilled and enjoy making things with their hands. Hence DIY – and the workshop asks: would you like to make your own cloth pads?
Q: Are these artists-craftspeople who make things with their own hands – to be considered the blue collar workforce?
Do wander about the craft vic site.
