#### Craftivism: Climate Coalition Heart Badge

Award winning activist Sarah Corbett founded the Craftivist Collective in 2009 to create a community and resources that use craft as a tool for effective and gentle activism. A lifelong campaigner, Sarah became doubtful of traditional activism methods and wondered if we couldn’t use craft to protest in a gentler, more beautiful way. Sarah says: “Politicians and businesses take note when we stand up for what we believe: craftivism gifts for influential people can encourage them to be the change they wish to see in the world. The time and thought that goes into craftivism pieces shows genuine care and commitment. Handmade, unusual campaigns using craft attract media attention, give people who are nervous of activism the chance to join in and intrigue passers-by.

#### Polyprint project A-Z nature Angie Mitchell Ernst Haeckel- KS3 class fabric wall hanging

This is a key stage 3 project where students do a polyprint on fabric using printing inks. This is a short 6 week project but could be developed to incorporate embellishments and sewing skills to fabric. I did this with year 8 and it took 6 weeks. Student enjoyed the outcome and it could have been made into a cushion for each student but we made a class fabric wall hanging.

Project schedule 6 weeks The resources for the students to work from. Each student chooses what they would like to draw. The steps to take while making the print and examples of student’s outcome. Students begin by researching Angie Mitchell and Ernst Haeckel and make up a sheet with these two artists and their drawings. The drawings they do of one of the pictures of the slide pictures of animals and bits of nature from A-Z. Students choose which animal or fish or plant they would like to draw. Students spend time doing a detailed drawing and design a border pattern for this work in black and white. Success criteria of drawings To use fine lines and to capture quality detail To concentrate on negative and positive shapes To develop a border pattern from nature around the drawing To try to layer up your drawing with foreground and background shapes The students drawings are then photo-copied and transferred to the polyprint block. Students use the photocopy to press through onto polyboard. The students are given a square and a strip of polyprintboard . Students first of all experiment printing on paper with their design and border. Students can do a black and white print or do a polyprint print of two colours overlaying their inks. The slide presentation gives you also opportunities for reflection and evaluation of outcome at the end. I have presented my artists in my book I have compared the works of 2 nature artists I have written a short paragraph on the style of artists I have a careful line drawing of my subject I have created my own artwork based on my research of subject colour I have a plan for my print design and have written about relief printing I have tested working with polyprints Student outcome is a wall-hanging and we sewed all the students outcomes together to make a fabric collage of squares.
