Founder of Connect and Create Beading.
We draw from the principles of ‘Craftivism’ in that it embraces the social capital benefit of collective empowerment, action, expression and negotiation. A craftivist is anyone who uses their craft to help the greater good. Craftivism is about raising consciousness, creating a better world stitch by stitch, and things made by hand, by a person. It’s also about sharing ideas with others in a way that is welcoming and celebrating traditional skills in new ways. Craftivism is built on human to human relationships.
