Hannyrðapönk í almenningsrými, einnig kallað hannyrðagraff, er
jákvætt hreyfiafl fyrir nærsamfélagið. Grunnhugmynd hannyrðapönksins;
að hver og ein manneskja sem vill láta gott af sér leiða með handavinnu,
handverki og/eða hannyrðum sínum getur starfað undir formerkjum
hannyrðapönksins. Engrar grunnþekkingar er krafist.
Í þessari smiðju á Menningarnótt getur fólk lært grunnatriði útsaums og hvernig er
hægt að graffa almenningsrými bæði með nýjum og gömlum útsaumi og
þannig stuðla gegn sóun textíls með afturnýtingu.

Craftivism in public spaces, also known as yarngraffiti, is a positive way to activate and influence our community. Anyone can be a craftivist, no special skills are required. If you use your crafts as a form of activism, and for the greater good, you can call yourself a craftivist.
In this short workshop on Menningarnótt you’ll learn the basic skills of embroidery and how to use yarn and upcycled textiles as a form of graffiti in your community.
