IconoCraft 2011

Well it's been a while since my last update. The "Simple Vinny" model is done and will be making it's debut at a local DIY art show on June 22. I'll have a couple models to choose from so come out and get crafty. Now here's all about Iconocraft:

"IconoCraft returns to the Victoria Event Centre! This moveable feast of art will inspire you to get crafty, with a range of different specialty crafting tables run by Victoria artists who will provide mini-workshops and materials to create your own Do-It-Yourself crafts to take home with you, like original screen-printed tees, cute burlesque-style underwear, needle felted monsters, Paper Toys, chainmail, buttons and more. While... you craft up a storm, you’ll be able to enjoy tunes courtesy of DJ Desunos and watch live painting by Kristin Grant of Urbanheart Live. Our wonderful craft instructors will have their handmade wares for sale, too.

Doors are at 7pm and demonstrations will start from 8pm. Tickets are available at the door for $10 and include $3 of tokens that can be used at the craft making tables (each table will require a small fee of between $1 and $5 to cover material costs for your DIY crafts).

Learn to make...
-needle-felted creations
-decorated cupcakes
-Paper Toys
-screenprinted t-shirts (you can even bring your own)
-feather earrings
-burlesquified underwear/bras/bikinis (bring your own to decorate!)

Demonstrations from:
Derek Jacoby (from Maker Space) - laser cutter
Ryan (from Knotty By Nature) - drum carding & nuno felting
Kristin Grant (Urbanheart Live) - airbrush body painting

plus: live canvas and body painting from Kristin Grant and Urbanheart Live."

So there you have it. Be there or just go and you'll have a great time and have something to show for it by the end of the night.
