For you who do not know me Ingo, who run Queer Fayre and Wotever… I’m coming from North of Sweden where Handicraft is/was a lifestyle and a way of living… You Create what you need and use. I myself know how to knit, make pottery, am a silversmith and can sew. Skills I learnt as young. My mum is a keen knitter and her socks are the best as many of my friends know as she knits and send to them. My dad does woodwork, boxes and clever stuff, made all out of wood…
Here is a new video combining the best of what I like about this ArtForm. Crafty, Fabulous stuff created by from good sources, used in unique and Spectacular ways.
Never Ever have I been more happy to see a video on a friends timeline.
Thank You Christine Bylund (also brought up near where I grew up – but about 20 years later – now part of the running of Wotever Stockholm with Josephine Krieg)!
A few years back I started Queer Fayre here in London, both as an alternative Day Time, more family friendly day event. But also to show case Craft, and give space for Crafty people within our community.
Clever Queer People coming up with clever Queer Craft!
Perfect for the Modern Queer in all our shapes and forms; Cards for all occasions, Happy Beard Day for the mate who has started Testosterone and finally have one, ‘Suck my Clit’ Panties for the outgoing Vagina wearing player. Hand creams, Lip balm, Fingerpuppies for the rainbow family…. We have seen a big variety of craft you simply can not find anywhere else…
It’s a celebration of Recycled clothes, books and music… Like whate every new/young queer need to know and own… Books to read… The amount of times people have squeeled of happiness finding leathertrousers in their size for a tenner, the book – long out of print but still on Universities reading lists… That replacement album of Barbara Streisand that your ex took in the move…..
All those things have and will continue to happen at Queer Fayre.
It is aa very relaxed Saturday packed with sweet things, like all our favourite Butch Jam, from The Butch Institute! It’s a Must!
Next Queer Fayer take place Saturday 4th October at Royal Vauxhall Tavern. Doors 1pm-6pm
The Bar is open, and there is strong Swedish Coffee and Cakes served during the day.
Here is a video from one of the first ones we did… Queer Fayre was still called Car Boot Sale back then and I got myself a new handbag…
