Craftivism - Who Stitched up Bansky?
I read an interesting piece in the London Metro this morning that I thought I would share...
"Who Stitched up Banksy?"
Through a movement called anti-craft or sometimes referred to as craftivism, people use hand craft methods to promote social and environmental issues. The Metro article showcased a group who are re-producing a series of cross-stitch designs which replicate a series of Bansky works.
With the help of google, I have found several online groups who are using cross stitch as a new graffiti medium.
Radical Cross Stitch
The craftivism method has been explored through research by designer and PhD student, Otto von Busch.
