Blogger - Seeds & Stitches
Craft

Davina Drummond is an artist, art educator and crafter. Davina blogs at Seeds and Stitches, which she co-writes with Hannah Bullivant, which inspires people to make in the home. She is passionate about the power of making both personally and politically. Her socially engaged art practice brings people together in the public realm to craft in a reflective and questioning mode.

Davina’s work includes both creating and teaching art. Her recent commissions include a participatory artwork for WOW 2014, a large scale public artwork for Camden Council and a three month residency at Great Ormond Street Hospital. She taught on the Art & Design Foundation Course at Chelsea College of Art and at the Brit School of Performing Arts for five years. Now she is art specialist in a South London primary school, where she runs a feminist art project for all her year 6 students and leads craft club.

She lives in London with her husband Nick, a designer, and their two daughters Elfie and Bonnie. She loves to spend her free days making and baking with Elfie whilst carrying Bonnie in her sling and listening to Helen Reddy’s ‘I am a Woman’. She is a ardent feminist who drinks far too much tea whilst discussing issues of gender equality with her friends.

Davina and Hannah will be running crafts during Blogtacular 2015. You’ll be able to take some time out to sit, chat and create with your fellow bloggers.

  • We love to showcase indie business at Blogtacular and give them the same space opportunity as big brands to connect with bloggers at conferences. You’ve met the goody bag contributors and now let me introduce our 2018 Market Place! We were joined by five indies all of whom were showing and selling their products at the conference. The whole space was buzzing with Yuk Fun, Notes Beauty, The Fabric Fox, South Island Art and Capture by Lucy Backdrops all showing at the conference. #blogtacular
  • We pride ourselves on how smoothly Blogtacular runs and it wouldn’t be possible without this team of wonderful people. Dora has been working with us over the last couple of months to plan the event, Sarah & Claudia have been with us since the very first event streamlining the customer experience and operations, Momtaz & Natasha joined us for a second year to host rooms alongside Alex who took on our third room this year and Hannah joined the ops team alongside Mr Kat to make sure everything was where it was meant to be. We are so grateful to our team for giving up their time, energy and ideas to make our conference the best it can be. #blogtacular
  • Holy moly - what an incredible event! We filled two days with colour, fun, friendship and so much learning. Huge thanks to everyone who came to the conference and everyone who worked so hard to make it a truly exceptional event. You really are what gives Blogtacular its spirit and the reason we’ve loved every minute of all five conferences. Over the next few days we’ll be sharing moments from the conference and some exciting news for future events but for now, we’re going to bask in the happy glow of your positive energy! #blogtacular .
