It sounds like a silly way to connect with the natural world. But, through crafting, I get the opportunity to study what animals really look like, interpret and express that in my own creative way, and then share my love for them with others when I give away the finished products! I even have crochet hooks handmade from wood collected from the forest where I conducted my Masters fieldwork! Here are pictures of some of my creations:
I’d love to see other people’s animal/nature-related craft projects!
