Craftivism is close to my heart – stitching inspired by political and social motivation – having a voice, developing discussions, engaging people in issues through the making process.
This is Bath Save the Children Shop Window last night. I work here – volunteer – quite alot actually..! It is developing into a wonderful community – yesterdays family vibe was fun, creative, and laughter filled the shop – a special place to be. At Save the Children The IF Campaign is central to 2013’s work. And so – imapiece is something we are actively supporting.. By the way, the transfer of my photos from my phone has caused a bit of blurriness – but that is a bit like my life so there we are!
Alison Harper and I made an imapiece ‘kit’
Alison volunteers at STC too!
Oooh – a little diversion… I did a lino cut of the Save the Children logo and look at these drying – which are now strung in a long line across the shop window – a mix of concepts from bunting and prayer flags – I tried to give these a fragility, a movement, a connection – something deeper and universal – so yes, my loose threads are there as ever!
Back to the jigsaw..
Making session at The Bell, Walcot Street
A finished piece…
Chapel Arts Cafe making session
I made this on on a train from Dorset to Bath..
Amazing what a journey can offer!
So – we will keep going – working, talking, making – being a part of something which is positively, actively, energetically and creatively making a difference….
