Introduction to Craftivism, and Guerilla Craft Drop

12th November 2016 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

YouAreEnough

I’m afraid I have to cancel this event due to an unexpected (aren’t kids great at this?) school information morning. As people have sent stitchings, I will be doing a sneaky craft drop anyway, and pictures will be shared on my Facebook page and Instagram feed (@disobedientchild). Another craftivism event will be arranged in the new year, but don’t let this stop you scattering kindness and love like healing confetti wherever you are able. x

——-

A day of craft and activism! I will talk to you about what craftivism means to me, how others interpret it, and what it might mean to you. In this workshop we will be participating in the You Are So Very Beautiful project (#YASVB), so I will show you how to make small stitched affirmations, in whatever style you wish. Then, and this is the fun bit (those of us less mobile are completely free to opt out or work around this), we will go out and around the city centre, leaving these affirmations for other people to find and enjoy. And then we’ll all meet up again and drink tea and eat cake and have a discussion about how it went 🙂
More simply: Learn, make, distribute, eat cake.

No sewing skills necessary, no interaction with random-strangers-on-the-street required, this is a totally fun and no pressure workshop 🙂

Starts at 11am, probably winding up at about 3ish, but I’m happy to stay later if people want to make/chat more. If you’ can’t make that date, take a look here for how you can still get involved: http://pickymiss.com/2016/09/21/beautiful/
