08 Oct Women’s Institute spotlight our current project: Our Craftivists Garden #wellmaking project is featured in October 2014 issue of WI Life
We are honored to have our current project Craftivists Garden featured in the October issue of Women’s Institute (WI) magazine ‘WI Life‘. Many of the WI groups across the UK take part in our craftivism projects and we hope they will take part in this project too.
The Women’s Institute (WI) was formed in 1915 to revitalise rural communities and encourage women to become more involved in producing food during the First World War. Since then the organisation’s aims have broadened and the WI is now the largest voluntary women’s organisation in the UK. The WI will celebrate its centenary in 2015 and currently has 212,000 members in around 6,600 WIs. Wow!
The WI plays a unique role in providing women with educational opportunities and the chance to build new skills, to take part in a wide variety of activities and to campaign on issues that matter to them and their communities. You don’t want to mess with these classy campaigners.
