Super excited to be hosting Shannon Downey aka Badass Cross Stitch AND Mindy Tsonas Choi founder of the Be Seen Project for this Craftivism Making Event!

Craftivism (craft+activism) spans all mediums and movements. This workshop gives you an opportunity to try your hand at two mediums. 
Stitch-up with Badass Cross Stitch aka Shannon Downey:
Know how to stitch already? Come learn a bit about the history of craftivism + the fiber arts and work on something meaningful and fabulous in community with others. Not a stitcher yet? Shannon will teach you how to embroider in mere minutes so you can stab it out for pleasure and power. Materials included. 
8 Page Zine making with Mindy Tsonas Choi: 
Learn to fold and create a simple 8 page zine using a single sheet of paper, while also learning about the origins of zine making as a DIY craftivist tool and subculture. You will receive your own copy of “How to Make an 8 Page Zine”, zine to take home with you! All supplies included.
