Stitching in South Africa

Stitches for Survival has spread across the globe, including support from HEXLappies, a group of women from the Hex River Valley in South Africa. These beautiful panels will be sent to us to display at Cop26 in Glasgow in November, calling on global leaders to take action to protect our planet.

HEXLappies use creativity to explore and record their experiences.

‘We foster conscious coming together, where the thoughts of grief and trauma can be explored, as well as joys from our lives’

‘In this time of COVID-19 everything shifted and it is now important for families to connect, listen to each other and make our own artwork for the future to remember this time’

Following their project documenting experiences of COVID-19, HEXLappies are now working away to produce panels for Stitches for Survival.

The rising numbers of people involved in Stitches for Survival demonstrate the massive global support for action to tackle climate change. Join the movement!
