So what is a crafter-thought?
For us at the Craftivist Collective craftivism is about more than just the making; it’s about the thought behind the action. The mindful activism that connects our hands and hearts with our heads giving us the courage to grapple with big issues through deep contemplation.
We’ve got an affectionate term for the thoughts that influence our craftivism at every stage. We call them ‘crafter-thoughts’. Vital little things. They’re the seeds from which our learning and understanding of the world grows. Each one we jot down empowers us to be more effective in all that we do.
We believe that craftivism is about showing solidarity with those more vulnerable than us. It’s about challenging others and ourselves to be the best global citizens we can be and continuing to do so outside of our crafting. It’s about asking why injustices happen and what can be done to fix the rout causes. It’s about long-term answers and finding both our voice and purpose through the comfort of craft.
