Product description

Review

""Craftivism" explores the power of being meaningful with our head and hands. Making with active intention is a political act no matter how big or small your intention is. Making is scary, and "Craftivism" gives permission to craftivists to be loud, to be quiet, to make with meaning, and most importantly, to share and create a difference." Kate Bingaman-Burt, author of "Obsessive Consumption"
"Betsy Greer has collected an impressive line-up of experts, and their essays both informative and delightful. This is a book for anyone who's into craft or activism -- or are simply curious about either." Perri Lewis, author of "Material World" and creative director of Mastered
"Sharing stories of how people make changes in the world through creative acts of making, Betsy Greer reminds us that revolutions are small before they are grand. In the spirit of craftivism, she gives voice to others, sharing their stories to demonstrate how collaboration -- as much as action and listening -- can effect change." Namita Gupta Wiggers, Director and Chief Curator, Museum of Contemporary Craft and Co-Founder, Critical Craft Forum
"Not a book of instruction but of inspiration, Greer's follow-up to "Knitting for Good" is a compelling survey of the global, little-known world of crafting as activism ... The photos and interviews are astounding and powerfully inspiring." "Publishers Weekly"
"Socially conscious crafters who enjoy the efforts of Faythe Levine ("Handmade Nation") and Leanne Prain ("Yarn Bombing, Hoopla") will be inspired by these activists' thought-provoking work." "Library Journal"
