Description

Join the Canterbury Christ Church Creatives and CCCU Women's Network for an opportunity to connect women across the globe through the shared experience of crafting, stitching and making. Secret Projects is a social enterprise that aims to empower women in India using traditional tailoring and stitching skills to make and sell standardised products. During the session a banner with the Secret Projects, Power Mantra will be decorated and embellished

Ahead of the day you are invited to create embellishments with which to decorate the banner. We will also be collecting donations of fabric and yarn to gift to Secret Projects. Esther Coren (Faculty of HWB) will be delivering a short talk about her involvement with Secret Projects and will be bringing along some of their products. For those who feel comfortable to participate, we will be recording a video greeting to accompany the banner and taking some photos throughout the session.

A video will also be recorded in India, of the women receiving the banner.
