Wollstonecraftivism - 6 week free craft programme for young people
Looking for creative ways to get your learners/children engaged throughout another lockdown?
Working with The Wollstonecraft Society we have put together a free, 6 session programme for young people that you can use to keep your learners and children busy with creative projects. 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
- We have budget available to provide art equipment and materials to those who do not have access to them during the holidays, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your home address and we can send these to you, free of charge.
