Craft The RevolutionAlicia Shearsby
Hello! I'm Alicia, the person behind Crafting the Revolution. I'm a 25 year old queer disabled woman living in Sheffield who's been creating textile art for three years now. I started creating art after my disability started to have more of an effect on my daily life and I found I was unable to leave the house as much as I'd like. I've always called myself a feminist and have been involved in politics for a while so it only seemed fitting that I channel some of my thoughts into my artwork. I found that this was a great way for me to stay involved and fight for the causes I believe in without it putting strain on my physical health. After tentatively sharing my work online, I found that many people enjoyed the art I was creating and thus Crafting the Revolution was born! My style and skills have changed and expanded over the years and I currently find myself spending most of my time working on embroidery and plush toys of both a political and non political nature. I also take custom orders and enjoy making special gifts to celebrate or mark any occasion!
