Book Description

14 Oct 2013
Craftivism is a term coined by Betsy Greer, referring to the raising of social consciousness through the medium of craft. The Craftivist Collective is at the forefront of this movement. Their mini cross-stitched banners and tiny urban installations touch upon issues of environmentalism, corporate greed and gender equality in a warm and humorous way quietly encouraging people to reflect upon these subjects in their own space and time. Through the process of crafting (usually in public places) the craftivists contemplate the issue that they are raising, and also introduce it to members of the public, who inevitably ask what they are doing. The final product is thoughtprovoking without feeling intrusive or overwhelming. Sarah Corbett set up the Craftivist Collective in 2009, and it now has a worldwide following. Craftivist followers in New York, Los Angeles and Berlin have taken inspiration from the website and photographed their work in prominent places. In this little volume, Sarah Corbett introduces some of the ideas behind craftivism alongside how-to instructions for a selection of craftivist projects and hints and tips for beginners. In the words of the Craftivist Collective, a spoonful of craft helps the activism go down.

As an extrovert introvert this is just what I needed. I enjoy crossstitch and I like to make an impact, and make people think. I do feel at times people don't listen to me. I am just a voice in the wind but this is an opportunity to stand out in the crowds. Nothing is to fiddly and complicated.I also like how you can adapt the ideas to your own opinions and thoughts. Embroidery is very eye catching and politically this is very important. It also shows effort and the great lengths you have taken to do this. It is important that people can easily read it. The subjects can also be topical and because some projects can be fairly small, you can russle up something really quickly in an afternoon. Embroidery threads are something many of us do have at home, unlike paints when you want to quickly do a placard. I like the ideas, though I wouldn't do the masks as I don't want to be arrested! I like the banners and fabric slogans best. The photos were also very nice and inspiring.
