Stitchable Changemakers

Craftivist Collective

Join award-winning campaigner, Sarah Corbett, for an hour long workshop where you'll stitch your favourite changemaker whilst exploring your own inner activist

Stitch by stitch, as you reveal the face of your chosen changemaker, reflect on the values threaded through them and their lives to help you reflect on how you can be part of the positive change you wish to see in our world. 

The session is led by Sarah Corbett, the founder of Craftivist Collective, a social enterprise which uses the technique of craftivism - combining craft and activism - to engage people in social justice issues.

All materials are provided and no experience is necessary. This workshop is for ages 14+.

About Craftivist Collective

The Craftivist Collective is exactly that – a collective, an inclusive group of people committed to using thoughtful, beautiful crafted works to help themselves and encourage others be the positive change they wish to see in the world.

But it started with just one person: Sarah Corbett, an award-winning campaigner with 30 years’ practical experience as an activist.

Sarah grew up in a low income area and was attending demonstrations with her parents on local and global issues by the age of three. She went on to have a successful career as a professional campaigner for NGOs including Christian Aid and Oxfam, and the UK Government Department for International Development (DFID).
