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.
