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)

Needle (Milward)

Detailed instructions

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.

Artist

The Craftivist Collective was started in 2009 by Sarah Corbett, an award-winning campaigner with 30 years’ practical experience as an activist. At that time Craftivism was a relatively new concept (the term was coined by American writer and crafter Betsy Greer) Since then, Sarah has been developing her own unique ‘Gentle Protest’ approach to Craftivism, and has gained a following of friends and strangers around the world who want to also get involved in this strategic, thoughtful and effective approach to making change "one stitch at a time".

Material Information

All of the materials, packaging and printing are carefully sourced by Sarah from local and sustainable small business and then assembled in her flat in Hackney. Use with courage and care.
