Pick a craftivism project and join the gentle protest movement

 

When it comes to campaigning, it’s not always easy to know where to start. That’s why we’ve spend years developing a range of projects to help craftivists engage with a variety of issues in a meaningful and strategic way.

Each project can be done individually or as a group, and is designed not only to help you create a finished item but to reflect on the issues involved as you stitch.

We’d love to see how your project is progressing, so keep in touch with us @craftivists on Twitter, Instagram & Facebook
