Culture

Unleash your inner domestic goddess and have a go at knitting (yes, we’re serious)! Buzzy social media pages such as @blackgirlknitclub are making it a trendy pastime.

Started by friends Sicgmone Kludje & Vea Koranteng, the East London-based group are creating a space for black women in the craft industry. They state on their website: "Our aim is to create an inclusive space for black women and women of colour to gather, unite, and inspire each other through the confidence of encouraging hand knitting skills and in turn create a learning platform that highlights the importance of creativity in our community."
