Jacquie Tinkler

As a craftivist, Jacquie seeks to communicate her frustration with the increasing conservatism in Australia through craftivist actions. Prior to segueing into academia, Jacquie taught art and craft, and continues to weave art through everything she does, including her academic work. Jacquie maintains that craft can be introduced into a number of unexpected places in order to reframe our understanding of our social and political lives. Jacquie has been an active member of Knit Your Revolt – a network of crafters sticking their needles to misogynistic knit-wits and extreme conservatism.
