Craftivist Tree of Kindness
Crafting a Kinder World: The Tree of Kindness
Drop-in craft session for adults and children age 8+
Saturday 27 May 11-4pm at the Make It Shop
We are celebrating the end of our month-long craftivism exhibition with a day of drop-in activities to create a tree of kindness.
You are invited to drop by and craft an item with a message of kindness on it to hang on our kindness tree. It can be any craft – a pompom, a stitched message, a crochet heart, an origami dove, a model made from clay, painted pebbles etc. We will have examples of things to make, and messages to share, to inspire you on the day.
Afterwards, you can put your item on the tree and take someone else's. You can either keep it, or 'craft-bomb' it elsewhere, say in a park or railing near where you live, thereby passing on a friendly gift and message. People have called this 'random acts of kindness'. Take a look at these kindness activities on Pinterest to get some ideas.
Here's some examples of items that will be on our Kindness Tree, and perhaps 'craft-bombed' as random acts of kindness. What will you add...?
