The Green Movement, or Environmental Movement, is seen mostly as a "white movement." We do not normally associate the green movement with environmental racism or (in)justice. This workshop will talk about how the green movement affects people, barriers and possible strategies to get people of color more engaged in the environmental justice movement.

This talk focuses on the way we DON'T talk about poverty in the U.S. Poor white folk are the largest poverty group in the country, yet they are seldom presented in the media or in conversations about marginalization. My work looks at how poor whites carve out their paradoxical identity within the glowing assumption of white privilege.

Learn the traditional approach to knitting socks on double point needles. Knit ribbed and stockinette stitched cuffs to determine your gauge, work a classic short row heel, knit the foot and finish off with well shaped toes and the kitchener stitch. Learn how to knit with two colors; weaving in ends as you go, how to carry yarn up the side of your work, the best ways to join a new ball, how to stripe in rib. Finally, learn to adapt the pattern for any foot size—from child to men’s size 13. Discover that a single pattern as designed by textile instructor Crystal Estelle‐Dobbs will give you the knowledge to knit socks for the whole family, from light weight to bulky hiking socks. Students must have beginning knit skills and be able to maintain a consistent gauge.
