Lizzy Emery is a crafty Witch currently undertaking her PhD in Women’s Studies at Flinders University. Her doctoral research is focused on the history of Australian feminist craft from 1975 to the present. Lizzy is an avid crafter who teaches a range of textiles craft processes from her home studio in Torrensville, Adelaide. She has also taught as a sessional lecturer at both Flinders University and University of South Australia.
In her work as a crafter Lizzy facilitates a range of community based workshops and projects. Her pedagogical approach is based on creating non-hierarchical encounters between artist and participant to facilitate meaningful experiences of creativity where both parties learn from each other. Along with her craft practice Lizzy is interested in feminist histories, anarchist philosophy, foraging, Witchcraft and gardening.
