Wollstonecraftivism

6 week free craft programme for young people during the summer holiday

Looking for ways to get your learners/children busy this upcoming summer holiday?

Working with The Wollstonecraft Society we have put together a free weekly programme for young people over the holidays. Inspired by Mary Wollstonecraft’s legacy, learners will learn about social justice causes, learn about different crafts, experiment and learn new skills and create 6 Craftivist pieces themselves expressing how they feel.

What is ‘craftivism’? “A way at looking at life where voicing opinions through creativity makes your voice stronger, your compassion deeper and your quest for justice more infinite.”

Each week learners will:

  • be introduced to a new topic of activism, like ‘helping the environment’ or ‘Black Lives Matter’
  • Meet a ‘Craftivist’ (someone who uses craft in their activism) and watch an interview explaining and showing their work
  • Follow a tutorial on how to create their own Craftivist work that week
