Sarah was born in Liverpool in the 1980s. For 6 years she worked for Christian Aid, DFID and most recently Oxfam as a professional campaigner & mobiliser.
She started doing craftivism (craft + activism) in 2008 as a reaction to traditional forms of activism. And due to demand, set up the global Craftivist Collective in 2009.
This hobby has turned her into one of the leading spokespeople in the craftivism movement (The Times featured her as the leader of one of their 5 'New Tribes' of 2012) & was shortlisted for the 2013 Observer Ethical Award for Arts & Culture
Sarah works with art institutions such as V&A, Southbank & National Portrait Gallery, as well as charities such as Save the Children & Unicef, and has also collaborated with cult jewellers Tatty Devine & Secret Cinema amongst others.
As well as collaborations, she also sells products, delivers training workshops and talks, exhibits her craftivism work around the world, and her book “A Little Book of Craftivism’” was released in 2013 distributed by Thames & Hudson & DAP worldwide.
