Eco Drag “Make & Take” Drop-in and Social with Artist & Drag King Lady Kitt
8pm – 9pm
Café, Birmingham LGBT Centre
How can the lgbtqia+ community use our contemporary & historic queer crafting skills to respond to the climate emergency?
Lady Kitt and Craftspace staff will share a fun, simple but effective crafting technique using plastic bags to make decorative flowers. Have a chat with Kitt about their experience of developing eco drag characters through ‘planet-kind’ drag crafts (drag costume, wig & prop making using recycled, natural and low environmental impact materials and processes).
All welcome, no creative experience required, materials and tools provided. If you don’t fancy making you’re welcome to pop in to see what’s been made, have a chat, hang out and have some refreshments.
This event is part of Drag Declares Emergency project and #EcoDragChallenge developed by Lady Kitt and commissioned by Craftspace.
Presented as part of SHOUT Festival 2022.
