don't stop til you get enough
If your weekend isn't already booked up the wazoo with family gatherings, kids playdates, shopping, washing and ironing, newspaper reading and gardening you might want to think about making some stuff at any one of the multitude of craft related weekend specials taking place as part of the festivus for the restofus Craft Cubed.
If you (like us) are a sucker for old school type and hand drawn fonts then look no further than the Old School the New School of Design and Typography's hand made type and tea event. To be honest I'm so in love with this joint that it almost breaks my brain and I'm still promising myself a little short course once our big HML project is tucked away. This event will give you a chance to create your very own new and original typographic characters and make your own typo poster in a special hand lettering workshop that will also include some seriously delicious rhubarb related baking and hot tea. WHAT COULD BE BETTER!
10 Grey Court, Coburg
For 'the young and young at heart' looking to recreate their own little Moonrise Kingdom (isnt that all of us?) there's Thread Den's Weekend Craft Camp. Select one or all of the six different craft activities over saturday and sunday ranging from granny squares to artist appliqué. Brilliant idea - we're hoping to get on board at least one, although we might not be wearing headbands.
26 Wellington Street, Collingwood.
The one we're REALLY interested in however (because we love to make stuff we can wear above all else) is the NEON WRAP workshop with the amazing Anna Davern this Saturday at NC4. Call TODAY and see if there are any seats left at the bench for this one - only $25 if you are a craft vic member, plus $5 for materials AMAZE!!! This workshop will totally set up your summer accessory wardrobe and I for one am beyond excited.
61 Weston Street, Brunswick.
There's loads more on too - check out the festival guide here and make your plans - just remember to keep next weekend free too for the ceramics and craft cubed open studios! Craft - don't stop till you get enough. BECK
