while normally the small craft hosts events at the trumbullplex in detroit, they've taken their act on the road this winter, and yesterday they hosted a meet-up at pot & box in ann arbor. it was such a lovely space for a kick-ass crafty gathering! amy and ethan cronkite of small craft provided coffee, tea and yummy vegan cookies, cellar door soap co. sold delicious soaps, while i lead a skillshare on how to turn old paperback books into pretty book sculptures! paperback trees and dangling diamonds were the most popular shapes made by guests. it's a fairly simple craft once you learn the tricks, and it's quite addicting, so hopefully i've created a few folding addicts. we had a great crowd with some of my favorite crafty faces in attendance, and i had boat-loads of fun. (get it? boat? small craft?)
thank you so much to those who came out, and to small craft for organizing these monthly gatherings, and for allowing me to share a skill this wintery month.
next up: the small craft will be at woodward avenue brewery in ferndale, where handleber will be leading a skillshare, and glass action will be the featured pop-up shop. i'm in!
