04 Dec Presents with a positive purpose and ethically made
From craftivism kits that will help you improve our world the world in a positive and kind way, to thought-provoking postcards to remind you to be the best version of yourself, our latest product range is full of great ideas for Christmas gifts that are more than fun, they are can be fulfilling to you, others and even make our world a little bit better. Plus they all fit neatly into Christmas stockings (just saying;p)
Each one is not only ethical – made or upcycled in the UK using recycled resources and donated fabrics wherever possible and made up in my little studio apartment in East London – but they are beautiful and useful too, designed to help you and your loved ones make a difference in society, in your community and in your own life whether you use them alone or with others. Plus all profits go to support our change making work around the world – what’s not to love?
Three reasons to give a Craftivist Collective gift this Christmas
- Make a difference: This gentle, thoughtful blend of craft and activism is a great way to attract people’s attention, lovingly challenge their thinking and encourage them to be a part of the positive change they want to see in our world .
- Gain a wellbeing boost: Not only is contributing to society an integral part of our the World Health Organisation’s definition of wellbeing, crafting in and of itself is a great way to slow down, reflect and recharge. Why not offer a ‘wellmaking’ gift to a loved one to use over the festive season.
- Harness the opportunity between Christmas and New Year: It doesn’t have to be a blur of left over chocolates and comedy re-runs if you’ve got a new kit to stitch or an inspiring book on craftivism to read, and what better way to reflect on 2016 and prepare to be your best self in 2017?
DIY Craftivism gentle protest kits Accessible for even the most novice of crafters. All kits come with clear instructions, tips, questions to reflect ton whilst stitching and more. Find out more about each kit here.
“I knew it [craftivism DIY kit] would be good, but when I opened it and read it I was blown away… having read the suggested letter to my MP I felt fired up again – not with anger but with hope, and a determination to be as compassionate, positive and kind as I can!… Thank you @craftivists for reminding me that kindness is infectious and powerful. Now, I’m off to get the How To Be A Craftivist book.” – @LondonCraftClub (via Instagram)
Tools to help hone the craft of gentle protest To be an effective craftivist you need to use your heart and head as well as your hands. These tools can help you become the most effective and gentle change maker possible whether it’s to help you create your own craftivism projects or learn how to be more gentle in your activism in general.
Adopt a Craftivist (me Sarah) for 2018 and help the Craftivist Collective continue our transformational work with people personally and political structures. This isn’t a new concept for activists – campaigners throughout history, from Martin Luther King and Gandhi to Peter Tatchell and Jack Monroe, have relied on the kindness of strangers and friends. Now I’m appealing to that same kindness to help keep the Craftivist Collective thriving. I send ‘Candid Craftivist’ emails to my adopters (you can adopt me on behalf of someone else) with updates on how your support has led to real change. More information here
One adopter, Martin from 2017 said: “Congratulations, Sarah, This is such amazing work… I am more than happy to keep adopting you through 2018… This is one of the best uses of £10 a month I can imagine.”
