Following on from our initial meeting at The Craftivists Garden exhibition in January of this year, I would like to introduce you all to Alison Mayne, a PHD researcher at Sheffield Hallam University. She is researching wellbeing in women who knit or crochet.
This would contribute to a PhD study into the ways women share their knit and crochet online. Do you post to ask for advice or to show images of what you have made? Does it help you manage feeling lonely or to connect with other crafter-friends? Lots of these questions will be the topic of posts as we share together.
To take part, you’ll need to read the Participant Information document. I will create a seperate post including this later in the week. Alternatively you can join the ‘Woolly Wellbeing Research Group’ on facebook and find the document there. This is a closed group and all posts are confidential between group members. All material will be made anonymous in writing up research.
Just search for ‘Woolly Wellbeing Research Group’ or click to connect: https://www.facebook.com/groups/771190779613397/
Feel free to share!”
