23 Oct Help us make a Craftivist Handbook
I’ve got some exciting news I can finally share! For a long time, I’ve wanted to write a third book to accompany A Little Book of Craftivism and How to be a Craftivist, and I’m so pleased to say that work is now underway on the Craftivist Collective Handbook.
It will be a beautiful, square, hardback book of 20 Gentle Protest projects, methods and tools to help readers become positive and effective changemakers in our complex world. Plus you can see evidence of craftivists around the world who have used our projects to make positive change where they live too.
Where How to be a Craftivist focuses on the theory, this larger book is all about the step-by-step practise. A book to explain ‘How To ‘ create ethical craftivism projects and just as importantly, ‘Why To’ so that readers can fulfil the potential of their campaigns with both a strong strategy and mindful process.
Using kindness, respect and beauty to help change hearts, minds, policies and laws around the world has never been more important. I’m partnering with the incredible craft editor Lara Watson (formerly of Mollie Makes craft magazine) and Unbound, the crowdfunding publishers who specialise in bespoke books, to create this unique handbook and our page went live today!
It would be wonderful if you would support us in raising the funds to make this inspiring guide exist. We’re also asking for reader contributions, so there’s a chance to be included, too. More on that soon!
You can read more, and pledge as a supporter, on the Unbound page full of exclusive rewards and where you will be named in the back of every book as a supporter: www.unbound.com/books/craftivist-collective-handbook
Please do help and share this crowdfunding campaign far and wide! We’re using the hashtag, #CraftivistHandbook. Thank you so much in advance for your support and belief in gentle protest craftivism to improve our world.

So many friends in North Herts were inspired by the Four Thought Sarah broadcast on 23Sept that as of 1 Oct 2020 there is now a North Herts Craftivism what’s app group,!!! Many of us are active in Transition, XR, Friends of the Earth or political parties but we are putting aside those badges to find a different identity.
I am the anchor for the group and really excited that Sarah’s broadcast struck such a chord. I am receiving acceptances and ideas have started to come in, prior to setting the date for a zoom meeting to see what projects will bring us together as one group or engage members in smaller bubbles. I’m just sorry that your book of 20 gentle protests isn’t out yet….but I will certainly be reserving one!

Thanks for your kind words and exciting update on your plans Sue 🙂 Don’t forget that I have 2 other books that can help you with your plans plus kits and tools and lots of talks and podcast interviews you can learn from. Plus our 10 point manifesto is a useful resource too. Thanks for supporting the new book creation!:) x
