Event description
Join us in a three-hour workshop to create a political statement in cross stitch and chat about issues that matter to you.

About this Event

Join the Centre of Democracy and learn how to create political statements using cross stitch and chat about issues that matter to you.

Craftivism is a way to make connections, make our voices heard, make a difference, make change. Engaging with craft activities also improves your wellbeing by reducing anxiety and loneliness, boosting your mood and lowering stress levels

What is Stitch & Resist?

Stitch & Resist is a participatory craftivism project which explores how creativity can help us stay well, stay connected, and stay engaged with the causes we care about.

What will we do in the workshop?

In this workshop, you’ll learn the basics of how to create your own textile art about issues that are important to you. We will show you all the tips and techniques of cross-stitching, we will lead discussions around the issues and concerns which impact you.

The Centre of Democracy are collecting images of these hand-stitched works to create a digital gallery that documents the issues and concerns of the time in which we now find ourselves.

Check out the works submitted so far in the Stitch & Resist online gallery.
