:: Wednesday 15 November: Craftivism : 7.30pm ::
This month we welcome Sarah Corbett from the Craftivist Collective to talk to us about her gentle protest approach which aims to change the world with deliberate, thoughtful actions.
Craftivism is for everyone from skilled crafters to burnt out activists, and anyone who wants to challenge injustice in the world but doesn’t know what to do or where to start. And it’s perfect for the WI – who have combined love of crafts with campaigning for social change for 100 years now!
Sarah will tell us about her work and philosophy and we’ll all try our hand at a small project that ties in very nicely with our recent meeting about making better choices in clothing!
To join Borough Belles, please fill out the attached form in advance and bring it with you on the day (this will help hugely with queuing time at the beginning). You can pay with cash, cheque or bank transfer. If the latter please ensure the payment is made by Tuesday latest.
All creations warmly welcomed for our snacks table, sweet/savoury/homemade/not. NB. We have a couple of Belles with serious allergies. If bringing homemade treats please write a full list of ingredients – thank you!
Check out our Pinterest page for ideas. If you are making something yourself, take pictures as you cook and get your recipe posted with our partner, Borough Market.
WATERLOO FOODBANK Don’t forget we’ll be collecting goods for the Waterloo Food Bank at each meeting. Please see this list for items they need and pop a few in your basket next time you’re at the shops. Here are a few of the most needed items: tinned fruit (400gms), tea bags (80s), UHT milk (1 litre)
