Dismissive Doctors & Crafting your way towards Hope (Part One)

Wednesday, 31 May 2023 - 6:00pm to 6:30pm
Tash is a caucasian woman in her thirties with shoulder length blonde hair, freckles on her face and red lips, she has a colourful tattoo on her shoulder as she stands side on and looks into the camera over her tattooed shoulder.

‘There are a million, million invisible stories such as mine out there, and lonely and disconnected voices that go unheard every day. I am almost in a state of disbelief that my tiny unseen story is going to be heard,’ says Tash who lives with chronic illness and disability.

Tash is also a self-professed ‘natural born scavenger and manic multidisciplinary crafter’. Pawnsuburbia is the name of her second hand and handmade crafts store (including jewellery and upcycled garments).


Tash is today’s guest on our radio show Brainwaves. She will share her lived experience with chronic illness and disabilities — and often dismissive medical professionals - and how crafting provided a pathway towrdas hope.


*Please note this is Part 1 of our interview with Tash- the rest will air next week, so stay tuned!
