Carrie Reichardt (UK) is a self-titled ‘craftivist’. Her work blurs the boundaries between craft and activism, using the techniques of muralism, mosaic and screen-printing to create intricate, highly-politicised works of art.

Carrie has been involved in community and public art projects for over 15 years, designing and consulting on large-scale mosaic murals in various local communities. She has produced a community mosaic in Miravalle, one of the most deprived districts on the fringes of Mexico City as well as designed and installed ‘The Art of Recycling’ at Harold Hill Library, Essex, and ‘The Revolution will be Ceramicsed’ in London Portobello. In 2018, Reichardt finally completed the transformation of her west London home into a giant mosaic mural – a process that took twenty years and tens of thousands of tiles to complete.

Carrie trained at Kingston University and achieved a First Class degree in Fine Art from Leeds Metropolitan. She was Artist in Residence at Camberwell Art College in 2009, following this with a period as Artist in Residence at The Single Homeless Project, of which she remains a proactive supporter.

Carrie is frequently called to speak on the use of craft and art as protest and has presented at National Museums Liverpool’s International Women’s Day lectures and the British Association of Modern Mosaic forum at the V&A, London.
