Making Memories Crafternoons with NVRC

Monday's Family Day upcycling workshops with North Vancouver Recreation & Culture were super rad! I partnered with my new crafty peep Helen Murphy (aka Craft Naturally) for a couple of Making Memories Crafternoons. Helen created felted wool pieces with participants and then I helped make frames for them. Best combo ever!

For frames, I brought old tiles donated by Urban Repurpose, cardboard boxes, cereal boxes and popsicle sticks. The popsicle sticks were perfect for the morning session since NVRC had a photo booth set up. Unfortunately my iPhone was a bit sickie and the camera stopped working. All photos provided by Helen's iPhone - thanks Helen!

Here's one of our most excited participants of the day. She was over the moon to learn about felted wool. And then to use an old tile to frame her masterpiece.

Here's one of our cardboard frame DIYs... I love using duct tape to not only glue materials together but it's a very clean and simple way to add colour to your projects.

Another sample project using cardboard then decorating the frame with scraps of patterned paper.

Here's my project - a swanky rainbow...

Here's the final felted wool rainbow. Next I'll need to make it a bit more sparkly then frame it. Yay!

Loads of thanks to NVRC and to Helen! We made crafty, upcycling magic happen together! And thanks to our participants - the Making Memories Crafternoons were a huge hit!
