Craftivism is a non-violent form of activism that gives people a voice when they feel voiceless and power where they feel powerless. It is an international movement for our time, and noted Craftivism expert Sayraphim Lothian has put together the first-ever tutorial book on the subject.
In Guerrilla Kindness, this master craftivist shows you how to make and use various crafts for political and protest purposes, including crafting methods like embroidery, cross stitch, knitting, stenciling, decoupage, stamping and much more. Craftivism, a growing worldwide movement, uses hand-crafted works to highlight political issues, creatively engage in activism, and encourage change in the world.
Craftivists employ their works to open a space for people to be introduced to issues and to broaden the discussion surrounding them. Creative resistance has been with us for centuries around the globe, and craftivism and makers stating their mind through the medium of art is here to stay.
