"Subversion refers to an attempt to overthrow structures of authority, including the state. It is an overturning or uprooting. "

Okay, so, we're not perhaps looking to overthrow a government with this but we are going to use stitch to get our messages out there - whatever they may be!
Female empowerment? Consent? Bodily autonomy? LGBTQ+? Equality? Fair pay? Whatever your passion is, come and stitch it, chat about it, learn from others and educate each other.

During this two hour workshop, we will stitch our hearts out. All materials and equipment will be provided for you to produce your own craftivism hoop to take home.

You can stitch anything you like* and all materials are included, tea, coffee and biscuits will be on hand to boost your stitching powers too.

If you've never hand embroidered before, we recommend you take our Intro to Hand Embroidery workshop before booking this session if you'd like to use anything other than a running stitch.

*Okay so not quite anything, I'll totally boot you out if you attempt to sew anything remotely racist, homophobic etc etc. but I know you're a fabulous lot so won't have to worry about that.
