Crafternoon Number Two: Autumn Craft Smackdown!Karen2014-04-22T03:57:38+00:00
With memories of last year’s mega successful Christmas Craft Smackdown! floating through my head, I rearranged the tables again this past weekend and invited some folks over for Crafternoon Number Two: The Autumn Craft Smackdown. This time around, the theme was “Puppets and Marionettes”. Some of us really enjoy puppet theatre and always wanted to give puppet making a try. While signing up for the Puppet Lab at St. Ann’s Warehouse is not in the cards for most of us, an afternoon of puppet making most definintely was!
Armed with some basic ingredients and an “I’ve never done this before but we are gonna wing it and see what happens” attitude, we were off. Just like last year, this session turned into a 12 1/2 hour Craft-a-thon fueled by spirits, a taco bar, creativity, great music and laughs. Here’s a round up of how it all went down!
As is usually the case, I cannot show you all the finished and unfinished items, as they are works in progress and will be making their public debuts elsewhere. What I can say, without a doubt, is that we have some creative friends, and I cannot wait until all our puppets get together for a dance off! Thanks to Jed, Brianna, Gabriel, Rachel, Laura, Paul, Kate and Gordon for making our our little puppet lab such a huge success!
