Crafty Ranters: Crafty Protest

August 12 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Craftivism!Craftivism is a way of peaceful protest both locally and globally. We can decide as a group what campaign we might like to join and what we might make.

Frances, who leads the group, has said of this session, “We’re going to be working on the theme of domestic abuse. I’m conscious that it’s a sensitive subject which may directly affect some of us who come along. I’m sure we will create (as we always do!), a caring, supportive and confidential community if raw nerves are touched.
Last time we met we thought about perhaps making a hanging, comprising of strips of cloth in the purple to yellow range of colours to represent physical violence. There will be other colours/ ways we might want to represent mental abuse. We may want to embroider or appliqué words or images. Please bring along any materials that you think might be useful, but don’t worry if you haven’t got anything – just come along. It may be that when we’ve gathered together our materials might inspire us to move in a different direction; that’s the beauty of working in a group.”

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!
