The inherent nature of craft involves slow and repetitive gestures. When we allow our minds to fully focus on the making process, it becomes one form of mindfulness. Similar to a yoga class, making something by hand temporarily relieves our minds and bodies of outside stresses.
There are infinite ways to use craft as activism and the projects on display are just a few examples. A handmade gift as a gesture of kindness and outreach creates a powerful interaction between maker and receiver. Craft as a form of communication seeks to build understanding and therefore more love and peace. What other ways can you imagine making our world a better place through craftivism?
