About this Class

Combine crafting with activism and you've got craftivism - the use of crafts to make positive changes in your community. In this class, we will take a slow-stitch approach to craftivism, using skills like hand sewing, embroidery, and knitting to create items with positive messages to share around BARN.


  • For students ages 12-16.
  • Skill Level: Beginner
  • Registration closes Monday, July 3.
  • When you register your youth, enter their name in the Youth's Name field and enter the parent/guardian email address for "registrants email." All reminders and important information will go to that email address.
  • Complete and return this minor permission form.
  • You can register your youth for an optional supervised lunch from 12-1 pm for the duration of this class.
  • A materials fee of $10 is included in the price of the class and covers all materials. 


This class will create a few small projects: a hand-stitched pronouns name tag, a hand-embroidered positivity sign, and a knit or crocheted yarn bomb that we will deploy somewhere around BARN!

She also firmly believes that positivity can change the world around you, and she loves to see how handcrafting items can brighten someone else's day. She teaches knitting regularly at BARN and can often be found in the studio playing around with new techniques.
