04 May Craftivist Footprint workshop in Kreuzberg, Berlin
Craft + Activism = Craftivism!
Handwerkeln + aktiv sein für eine schöne Welt!
Ein Workshop mit Sarah vom Craftivist-Collective: am Montag, 5. Mai, auf dem Tempelhofer Flugfeld, direkt neben unserm Grill-Treffpunkt (Eingang Oderstraße), um 19:30 Uhr geht´s los. Kommt pünktlich und bringt 6 € für das Footprint-Kit mit – an Ort und Stelle werden wir nach einer theoretischen Einführung von Sarah gleich aktiv. Weil es schwierig ist, das alles anschaulich genug zu beschreiben, damit Du Dir etwas drunter vorstellen kannst, hier Bild- und Tonmaterial:
We often reflection on the years ahead of us don’t we. We are connected to others and we have impact as a global citizen (daunting thought!). It’s easy to let life pass us by so why not craft yourself a physical footprint to help you remember how to be your best self & what hopes you have for leaving a positive mark on this world using your unique passions, talents & actions?
Craft helps us slow down & reflect. A piece of craft can also be a useful physical symbol to keep yourself motivated to be the change you wish to see in the world.
Ran by Founder of Craftivist Collective Sarah Corbett you will learn the classic skill of embroidery whilst also learning how to be a change-maker & strive to be your best self, using your talents, passions & actions to make the world a better place for people & planet. You will create a fabric footprint for you to keep and you will recieve support on what message to stitch on your footprint & suggestions of where to put it.
Sarah will also tell you more about the benefits of her approach to craftivism and the methods you can use. Based in London as one of the leading spokespeople in the contemporary craftivism movement, this is your chance to ask her lots of questions! Plus it’s a great opportunity to meet like-minded people and become craftivists together.
All materials are provided including footprint, thread, needles, pens, instructions and a kit to put them in to take home if you don’t finish the project. Plus additional Craftivist Collective products are available for purchase after class (such as Sarah’s A Little Book of Craftivism and other craftivism kits).
