CHALLENGING PERCEPTIONS [3 of 8]: ‘Stitched Stories’ with Rachel Tavernor

Let's explore the power of craftivism.

...

Stitched Stories weaves the interlocking narratives of the Craftivist Collective founder, Sarah Corbett and ex-prisoner Neil who continues to sew for Fine Cell Work. The documentary reveals the power and potential of needlecraft on their lives.

...

The short film will be followed by  Q&A with the director, Rachel Tavernor, leading to a general discussion and followed by a craftivist workshop, created and delivered by Eliza Stuart.

...

Based on the first two films in the Challenging Perceptions series, we will be doing a craftivism workshop, inspired by the work of Craftivist Collective, around the theme of Community. You will be invited to join the creation of a piece of artwork through embroidery, fabric painting, crochet, or any other fabric art form that takes your fancy! The film will last around 20 minutes, followed by the activity and some food.

...

We are also able to provide food this evening made by the lovely Mhairi McCleod!
