Blogger - Seeds & Stitches
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.
