Sarah Corbett

Sarah Corbett grew up in an activist family and has worked as a professional campaigner for over 10 years most recently with Oxfam.

She started doing craftivism (craft + activism) in 2008 as a reaction to traditional aggressive or quick forms of activism. Due to demand Sarah set up the global Craftivist Collective in 2009 which now has thousands of supporters across the world taking part in her craftivism projects.

She is now one of the leading spokespeople in the craftivism movement (with media across the world including French and Italian TV), has contributed to six books and regularly gives talks and lectures around the world.

Sarah works with art institutions such as the V&A, Southbank and National Portrait Gallery as well as charities such as Save the Children and Unicef and has also collaborated, among others, with cult jewellers Tatty Devine and Secret Cinema.

Sarah also sells products, delivers workshops and exhibits her own craftivism work around the world. She is author of A Little Book of Craftivism and her larger book How To Be A Craftivist: the Art of Gentle Protest will be out in October 2017 with Unbound publishers.
