Craft in Mind day 1 & 2


As if The Comic – project documentation wasn’t enough, we thought we would spoil you by giving you a video too.

in this first episode you will see us experimenting with clay, tile decals, and getting to grips with illustrations.

for day two you will also see us running around the Custard Factory site installing our first mini protest banners care of the Craftivist Collective and depositing our Messages in Bottles.

Between the comic and these short films you will truly get a feel of what it is like to be in one of our workshop sessions and an understanding of what we are trying to do.

The first episodes are just about us getting to know each other and understanding what Craftivism is all about.

As the Project continues we will be tackling Issues about Youth Mental Health and the projects aims and objectives will begin to tie together.

We hope you enjoy the movie. Please do leave a comment.
