Design your own piece of ‘craftivism’
We’re getting all geared up for WOW Hull from 10-12 March, which will showcase a whole bunch of talks, debates, music, film, comedy and activism that celebrates women and girls and takes a frank look at what stops them from achieving their potential.
Revolutionary Makers, a project running as part of WOW Hull, aims to help create this conversation by asking you to get involved by creating your own pieces of ‘craftivism’. Our lead artist Alinah Azadeh will be creating a large scale-installation at Hull City Hall as part of WOW Hull and your designs will be gifted to whoever comes to claim them at the end of the festival.
Through a set of three workshops, Alinah will be getting crafty with the community by showing example pieces that inspire and supplying take-away guidelines they can share with others.
Here is just one example of how you can play your part in WOW Hull through Alinah’s guide to ‘How to Make a Craftivist Felt Badge’.
You will need:
Felt fabric in several colours, scissors, thread, sewing needle, pins, tracing paper, pen.
Optional: Embroidery aida (14 count), embroidery thread and needle.
