Rebel Crafts: Fifteen Craftivism Project to Change the World

by Hester van Overbeek Author

Hand-painted signs, stickered slogans and knitted hats: craft and protest have gone hand in hand since people began to take to the streets and stand up for change. A way of visualising your beliefs, craftivism combines a passion for making with the desire to make your voice heard—using your own hands to quietly subvert the status quo. This book collects projects that will inspire change, resist injustice and subvert the everyday. Get expert advice in 12 fully illustrated step-by-step makes. With crafts suitable for both the experienced maker and the beginner, Hester will teach you how to stitch your way to freedom, screen-print for equality, letter-write for the people and sport your feminist credentials on a badge. Filled with beautifully photographed ideas for how to use and style your makes.
