Making For Change

2014 – ongoing
Birmingham & Online

Young people creating change in themselves and their communities though craft.

Making for Change is Craftspace’s project for young people that investigates positive social change through combining craft with activism (craftivism). Young people come together to learn, explore, discuss and make; creating campaigns around issues that are important to them in order to generate a change in themselves and their community.

We believe that making with your hands is powerful. Making for Change creates safe spaces where you can come together, learn new things and develop ideas. Through the process of making, those ideas become a reality.
