Craftivists’ meet up
October 19 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
We’re changing the world one stitch at a time!
This is a new group wanting to share and learn knitting, crochet, sewing skills etc and use it to influence change and protect the environment.
We’ll make sustainable gifts, useful items, hub displays, protest banners- anything we like! And gain skills and friendships for resilience too. We’ll use secondhand materials and avoid buying new.
At the moment we are meeting fortnightly on a Thursday at 7pm at the Hub, but times and venues will vary, to include as many people as possible. See our events calendar for dates.
People of all ages are welcome. If you are under 16, we will need your parent or carer to introduce you to us, and let us know your arrangements for getting home safely afterwards. We may ask for an adult to stay with you.
*Craftivism is a form of activism, typically incorporating elements of anti-capitalism, environmentalism, solidarity, or third-wave feminism, that is centered on practices of craft – or what has traditionally been referred to as “domestic arts”. Craftivism includes, but is not limited to, various forms of needlework including yarn-bombing or cross-stitch. Craftivism is a social process of collective empowerment, action, expression and negotiation.
