Time to Change, Young People’s Village, Cathedral Square, Colmore Row, Birmingham – 26 October 2012

The Craftspace Collective are going to be at the Time to Change event in Birmingham next week.

The Time to Change Village is a pop-up space where young people can learn the truth about mental health in a fun and interactive way. Young volunteers challenge stereotypes of mental illness by talking to other young people about their experiences of mental health problems. Collective members, with the aid of Viking Husquvarna Sewing Machines will be running a machine embroidery stand. They will be sharing their skills in this simple technique with other young people while asking them to respond to the question “How Do You Feel Today?”. The individuals will embroider their responses onto one long length of canvas, creating a continuous line of stitched drawings. This will also be part of the collective’s offer for this year’s Big Draw. Come along and see us!
