Like many, I turned to craft and making to process the unparalleled events that shaped 2020. For others, this appeared as a romantic strategy to withdraw from our chaotic world and the frightening headlines and social media updates about the state of our planet, communities, health and future. My experience contrasted this, the repetitive nature of making eliciting reflective thoughts. It brought these events to the front of my mind. My emotions and stresses became interwoven throughout my work. Soon I was in knots, both physically and mentally.
