The Solidarity Bunting project was first introduced as a workshop at “Also Festival” in 2015, and was enjoyed by 50 children (7 years old up), who all fell silent as they worked on their stitching and writing – much to the amazement of their parents.
Why choose the word Solidarity?
In today’s world we believe the word ‘solidarity’ is important to reflect on and to activate within our lives.
Solidarity means – unity or agreement of feeling or action, especially among individuals with a common interest; mutual support within a group.
The mindful stitching creates the space and focus to think about what the word solidarity means, and how you can stand in solidarity with others through the daily choices you make.
Suitable for children 7+. Adult supervision recommended.
Each kit contains:
Upcycled cotton triangles in various colours and patterns
Embroidery thread (Anchor)
Crafter-thought questions to reflect on and discuss whilst stitching
Tips to be an effective craftivist
Craftivist Collective label
Sales of these kits help to sustain and grow the Craftivist Collective’s global activities to engage people in Craftivism and support people to be the change they wish to see in the world.
