"Guerrilla Kindness is full of ways to show your support for a cause through homemade items. One of my favorites to see were the protest dolls, which can be done for any cause and can even be based on real people. There are also explanations for how to make banners, flags, and even bake goods that can be used to spread your message. There are also some elements of general craft teaching included. Lothian shares how to patch items that you've made so that they can continue to last even longer. These patching plans also allow you to add even more details to your work. While this is a crafting book, what I found tremendously important to point out what Lothian's decision to include a section on symbols and organizations in the introduction of the book. She wants to ensure that those who are crafting have a clear idea of that they are doing and are not alienating people or co-opting something that is not connected to who they are. Guerrilla Kindness and Other Acts of Creative Resistance is a great book for anyone who wants to grow their skills as a maker and is also interested in helping make the world around them a better place." -Nerdy Girl Express

Sayraphim Lothian is a public artist who utilises as many crafts as she can lay her hands on. She's interested in craftivism and creative resistance in all its forms. Her main body of work revolves around kindness as a form of rebellion, craft as a form of subversion and games in public to overturn expected behaviours. She is inspired by street art, craft history and the rebellious in almost all its forms. Lothian is the writer and host of Craftivism 101, a new tutorial series on the Youtube channel MonsterThinks, did her Masters thesis on Craftivism and is currently writing a book Guerrilla Kindness and Other Acts of Creative Resistance: How to Make A Better World Through Craftivism which will be published through Mango Publishing early 2018. She holds a Bachelor of Arts with Honours in photography, a Graduate Diploma in Primary Teaching from La Trobe University and a Masters in Art in Public Space at RMIT, Melbourne Betsy Greer is a writer, a researcher and a maker who asks lots of questions and drinks lots of coffee. In 2002, she started writing about the connections between craft and activism, two very (at the time) out-of-touch terms who needed a PR boost. Soon armed with the new term "craftivism," thanks to a friend at a knitting circle, she began to write about how embracing your craft, passion and creativity can lead to a more holistic life. In 2003, she started keeping track of all things craftivism at her online homebase, craftivism.com. Lucky enough to be involved with the craft resurgence right from the beginning, she continues to be excited when people take up knitting needles, embroidery thread, fabric or other crafty media in their quest to navigate and process the world around them.
