Crafty Ranters: Claiming Our Name

July 8 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Mothers of the Disappeared.In 1997 in response to the military dictatorship in Argentina, Mothers of the Disappeared embroidered their children’s names on headscarves as an act of protest against the kidnapping, torture and murder of their children.  Using simple stitches we will embroider our names – and perhaps other names too in an act of remembrance and solidarity.   It is also an occasion to remember that our names, and who we are are also precious.

Crafty Ranters are a relaxed group that meet every 2nd Friday of the month during Englesea Brook’s open season to enjoy chat, cake, coffee and craft.  The group is open to all and is for all abilities.

Sessions are free (but we always welcome donations!).

Materials are provided (unless stated otherwise).

You can just drop by, but we would encourage you to book in advance so that we can ensure that we have enough materials to go around.  To book your place please email Ruth at director@engleseabrook.org.uk and don’t forget to let us know about any dietary requirements you might have as well as whether or not you require wheelchair access.

Why not come along and try your hand at something new!
