2pm Craftivists workshop – studio

Engage in a spot of Craftivism with Glasgow Craftivists who use craft and creativity to reflect on issues, express views & link in with wider political movements. “Craftivism is a way of looking at life where voicing opinions through creativity makes your voice stronger, your compassion… deeper & your quest for justice more infinite” (Betsy Greer)

4pm Unravel (NC-suitable for all, 14mins, 2012) – studio

Unravel follows the western world’s last wanted clothes, on a journey across North India, from sea to industrial interior. They get sent to Panipat, a sleepy town and the only place in the world that wants them, recycling them back into yarn. With limited exposure to western culture, the factory workers construct a picture of how the West is and who wore the cast-off clothes.

4.30pm Advanced Style (E, 75mins, 2014) – studio

Advanced Style examines the lives of seven unique New Yorkers whose eclectic personal style and vital spirit have guided their approach to ageing. This film paints intimate and colourful portraits of independent, stylish women aged 62 to 95 who are challenging conventional ideas about beauty and ageing.

There will also the opportunity to see craft and textile themed films: Birth of a sewing machine; Textiles; and, Weave me a rainbow- from the Scottish Screen Archive throughout the afternoon.
