Words Spindle

From 7pm -9pm on Thursday 25th August the Craftivist Collective are inviting the public to join them in stitching a giant love letter at the Hayward Gallery in response to Tracey Emin’s Retrospective.

The Craftivist Collective have been invited by the Hayward Gallery to lead a free craftivism workshop (activism through craft) inspired by Emin’s exhibition. The Craftivist Collective are asking the public to stitch their signature onto their giant embroidered love letter and attach a handwritten tag with a description of how they will be showing their love this summer to other members of society.

The Craftivist Collective are passionate about showing love to our global neighbours through the power of craft and public cheap viagra professional art. Founder Sarah Corbett says “We don’t just want to talk about love or show it to a select few. We encourage everyone to show their love to the most vulnerable people in the world through action. Emin’s art, political views and the current political climate are hard to ignore. Please join us and show your commitment to love others by lovingly stitching your signature onto our giant love letter, attaching a tag with a description of how you are going to show your love this summer.”

Admission to the workshop is free. Venue: Waterloo Sunset Pavilion, Hayward Gallery.

Tickets to the exhibition can be bought online at: www.southbankcentre.co.uk
