Oh boy are we excited about this one. Our friends at BrisStyle are launching a Craft Caravan! No longer will you have to sit around in the ‘burbs twiddling your thumbs and wishing you could be cutting, pasting, sewing, and crafting like crazy alongside a happy bunch of like-minded craft-monsters… Coming to you on 1, 2 and 3 June 2012.
The BrisStyle Craft Caravan is set to be a moveable oasis of crafting goodness, which will engage festivalgoer’s in the suburbs and inner city. The onsite retro caravan will evoke feelings of nostalgia as well as providing a fun and interactive backdrop for a friendly neighbourhood craft-up, appealing to all the family, young and old. Just like a craft holiday in your own backyard.
So say hooroo to the crowds and escape on your own crafty retro adventure at the BrisStyle Craft Caravan’s “make and take” suburban oasis. Participants can drop in and craft the day away using holiday crafting skills from their schooldays. In particular, the June 1 King George Square event will come to life with the extra help of community yarn bombing. More information on the yarn bombing can be found here. Adventure never looked this easy!
Highlights of the “make and take” workshops:
Caravan colouring-in Oasis: Use your own flair and imagination to colour in a variety of retro suburban caravanning items. All ages and colouring outside the lines welcome!
MYO Caravan Brooch or Magnet: Create your very own piece of wearable or magnetised nostalgia using your choice of crafting medium. Draw, glue or colour-in a cool quirky caravan shape to take away to your own suburban oasis. Ah the serenity!
Community Bunting Project: This project aims to engage and showcase the imagination and crafting talents of the local communities where the festivals are being held in the form of bunting.
