Craft in Common is a series of five creative online workshops, led by artist Alinah Azadeh, to help us to get through these difficult times by making together. It has been co-commissioned by MAC and Craftspace for a forthcoming national touring exhibition We Are Commoners.
Each workshop is themed to relate to a human value or experience such as; courage, care, connection, loss and emotional repair. Alinah invites you to make these objects for yourself or to gift to someone else.
Share your makes and stories with us on social media using the hashtag #WeAreCommoners - and be sure to tag us @mac_birmingham.
If you are interested in showing objects you make alongside the exhibition, please email Craftspace at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07394 745 865.
Workshop 2: CARE
Making a container for self or group care
“It’s important to think about your own self-care to stay mentally and physically healthy, manage difficult situations and take time to reflect on yourself and how you are feeling.”
Alinah invites you to make a moulded container for self-care, for yourself, as a family, or as a group of friends
“Care is as fundamental as equality, justice and freedom. When we actively care we transform things, others and ourselves.”
