Lindy West, DIY ‘Zine Making, Patches For Revolution, And Transforming Your Relationship To Feminism At The BUST Craftacular

by Emily Rems

These may be days of rage for women’s rights activists burning it all down in the age of Trump, Weinstein, and #MeToo. But here at BUST, we also know that feminism can be super fun, and we’ve got a bunch of great activist-inspired workshops at this year’s BUST Holiday Craftacular—Dec. 9 & 10, Brooklyn Expo Center, 72 Noble St.—that prove exactly that.

First up, we have amazing talks featuring Lindy West, Amber Tamblyn, and Kristen Sollee

Then, we’ve got amazing classes going on all day. Gather your girl gang together and try out a workshop on Ancestral Memory and Body Decolonization. Or get grounded with a tutorial on #MeToo Tools & Active Meditation that will help transform your relationship to power.

And for those who want to get crafty, our ‘Zine Making class and Patches for Revolution demo will help you channel your inner riot grrrl.


You’d be hard pressed to find such a diverse and expansive lineup of interactive programming anywhere else, especially at this price. Tickets for individual workshops are only $15. But if you want to workshop-hop all day long, a day pass is $40 and a weekend-long pass is $75. These passes also get you into all music performances and talks from feminist luminaries including Lindy West, Amber Tamblyn, and Liz Winstead! So gather up your posse and prepare for a fantastic feminist weekend of good vibes and skill sharing at the BUST Craftacular!
