Sarah Corbett founded the Craftivist Collective in 2009 after craft-lovers around the world asked to join in her craftivism (activism through craft) as a way to make positive change and give introverts a voice outside of traditional extrovert forms of activism.

Join Sarah at Vivid Projects for a special workshop in which you will craft your own Mini Protest Banner. Following the workshop you are encouraged to leave your banner somewhere as street art to provoke thought and action in passers-by. Sarah will also explain more about the history of craftivism and her approach, and the benefits of craftivism as a political and public engagement tool.
Tickets cost £7.50 and include your workshop materials – reserve your place here.
