Guerrilla Kindness and Other Acts of Creative Resistance: Making A Better World Through Craftivism

Guerrilla Kindness and Other Acts of Creative Resistance: Making A Better World Through Craftivism

Regular price $24.99

Craftivism is a non-threatening form of activism that gives people a voice when they feel voiceless and power where they feel powerless. It is a growing worldwide movement in which hand crafted works are being used 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. While it might seem that this most colorful movement began recently, 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.

In Guerrilla Kindness, artist, scholar, activist, and YouTube art teacher Sayraphim Lothian gives you an introduction to the art of craftivism, and provides a brief history of creative resistance. This master craftivist shows you how to make and use various crafts for political and protest purposes including:

Embroidery

Cross stitch

Knitting

Stenciling

Decoupage

Stamping

and much more!
