Craftivism in Action: Embroidering Against Sexism

Crafter Marie Brian - aka The Cotton Floozy on Instagram - was fed up with hateful and sexist comments on her blog. She fought back through craftivism.

Febbraio è arrivato e io voglio salutarlo così, con uno cuore creato per la campagna di #craftivism dell'#EtsyItaliaTeam Voglio aiutare, nel mio piccolo, a diffondere quelle che sono le esigenze della micro imprenditoria artigianale, i valori e la forza che l'artigianato racchiude in sé. Se anche tu sei sensibile a queste tematiche partecipa alla campagna "Fatto a mano con il cuore" è facile, è divertente e possono partecipare tutti, ma proprio TUTTI, quindi niente scuse, diffondiamo… Handmade Decorations, Drink Sleeves, Instagram Posts, Crafts, Creative Crafts, Handmade Crafts, Arts And Crafts, Crafting, Craft

Today we presented the #StitchforSyria wall hangings to the @concernworldwideuk Livelihoods project in Tripoli where over thirty women are currently learning embroidery and discovering that it's not only a good way to generate income but a soul soothing way to spend time with other people. It was an honour to be there meet them and be their first ever manbroiderer! They were thrilled to see the work and know that so many of you took time to send pieces to Concern making beautiful hangings…
