We run vulva making workshops. And we'd like to run one for you. If you want us at your event, party or corporate team bonding day (anyone?) then get in touch.
We provide all the materials that you need to make vulvas, a couple of great books to help those who aren't so familiar with their vulva geography and a friendly feminist called Jo to host the whole thing. She'll also talk about the difference between a vagina and a vulva, that time she thought she lost a tampon right up in her womb and how she now loves her vulva, despite spending many years thinking the opposite.
Not only is making vulvas a fun activity, but we believe that it helps smash the shame around female genitalia. Our idea of a 'perfect vagina' comes from the highly unrealistic and un-representational world of porn and 'designer vaginas'. We grow up thinking that they are gross, they smell like fish and they should always be perfectly smooth and hair-free. And there should absolutely not be anything flapping about outside of your labia majora.
We say bollocks to that.
Vulvas come in all shapes, sizes and colours. They smell like normal, human bodies smell. They have hair. Sometimes they don't have hair. They can be asymmetrical, multi-coloured and have lumps and bumps and ingrown hairs. They can be tucked away or hanging free. They get sweaty on hot days and they are itchy sometimes. We do not need to be ashamed, embarrassed or disgusted by our vulvas. We don't even really need to love them and talk about them and parade them. We just need to accept them as they are.
Natural, wonderful and all different.
Our workshops celebrate this and encourage this. Getting people to open up and talk about their genitals helps everyone to realise that we all have worries, we all have questions and we all need to feel more comfortable talking about our bodies.
You can sit and chat to your besties, you can come along on your own or you can tell everyone about the time you did a fanny fart if you want. Craft workshops are perfect for getting people to relax, talk and learn. After all, you can't make something if you have no idea what it looks like.
Our workshops are open to everyone, you can take home your creations or leave them for the project and you absolutely don't have to do or say anything you don't want to do. There's no group hand mirror moments or ice breakers. Just glitter and judgement-free chats.
So if you're coming along to one of our workshops, hurrah, we can't wait to meet you!
And if you'd like to hire us to run a workshop for you, hurrah, we can't wait to hear from you!
