Is there an issue that you are passionate about this Pride Month? Is there something making you mad? Would stabbing something thousands of times help? If yes, maybe craftivist embroidery, where craft and activism come together, is for you! Step into the world of embroidered craftivism with local queer craftivist Lauren Matthews and be inspired to create art for change.

This workshop takes you through the what and the why of craftivist embroidery, how to plan your project, basic embroidery stitches to get you started, resources and lots more. After the workshop you will have a great impactful artwork ready for action!

Included in the workshop are all materials (so you can finish it up at home or keep making more), plus a copy of Lauren’s Craftivist Zine! Basic embroidery skills are all that are needed & if you’re not confident Lauren can teach you a few to get started.

15+, those under 18 need to be accompanied by an adult.

Across Victoria’s Midwest, we acknowledge that we travel across the ancient landscapes of many First Peoples communities.

These lands have been nurtured and cared for over tens of thousands of years and we respect the work of Traditional Custodians for their ongoing care and protection.

We recognise the past injustices against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in this country. As our knowledge grows, we hope that we can learn from their resilience and creativity that has guided them for over 60,000 years.

As we invite people to visit and explore Victoria’s Midwest, we ask that alongside us, you also grow to respect the stories, living culture and connection to Country of the Ancestors and Elders of our First Peoples.
