Craftivism – Banner Making Weekend
November 21, 2015 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 11:00am, repeating until November 22, 2015
As part of this years ArtCOP – a cultural programme coinciding with the Paris Climate Change Talks in December – The Stove will be hosting a series of craftivism Stitch In’s with our herald Moxie, and craftivist enthusiast Joy Cherkaoui.
Craftivism is a global movement, a ‘slow-activism’ encouraging thoughtful action, discussion, gathering and the learning of new skills. Whether you have been stitching for years, or would like to learn the basics drop in at any point during our sessions for conversation, tea and to contribute to our stitching projects.
The Stitch In’s have been running throughout November, and on the weekend of the 21st and 22nd of November we will be holding an intensive banner making weekend. Drop by between 11am and 4pm to help us create a banner to be carried in the Stop Climate Chaos Rally in Edinburgh the following weekend. The banner will also be displayed as part of The Stove’s Submerge exhibition in December.
