We're back for another round of crafting with Rosemary at Wando. It was so fun the first time we had to do it again! We're posting this early to give everyone enough time to come up with some ideas for projects. Check out the photos posted from the last event to get an idea of what all you can do: http://www.meetup.com/CharlestonCraftCrew/photos/18975002/#[masked]
This is a great way to make some personalized gifts, for others or youself :) And it's really inexpensive! For example, I walked out with 5 personalized items; two tote bags, a monogramed sticker, an ornament, and a cell phone case for $23.
We'll send out more info (like directions & contact info) a day or two before the event.
Here are some more details (copied from our last event):
Joy: Rosemary teaches Graphic Design at Wando High School and she's always mentioning all the awesome equipment they have access to. After pestering her for months and months, she's agreed to let us come and have some fun. This is like a crafter's mecca, you guys. There's no other place where we can go and use all these different pieces of equipment in one place. And it's free, y'all. All she asks is that we pay the small cost for whatever materials we use since these are purchased by the school. All money collected will go into the fundraiser fund for Warrior Ink, the print shop at Wando.
Since we have a maximum of only 12 people, please only RSVP if you are definitely going to come. And if your plans end up changing, please change your RSVP ASAP, i.e. not the night before, to give someone else this awesome opportunity.
Rosemary: Here are some of the projects we can do:
- Make buttons. 1" and 2.25" Buttons - $0.25 each
- Custom T-Shirts & Tote Bags - $4 to $10 each. We can print out designs or people can bring photos or paper to make their own. I keep white, black and grey standard t-shirts in stock. People can bring their own shirts to embellish, as long as they are at least 50% cotton. I suggest people search "heat transfer vinyl" on Pinterest to see what can be done.
- Vinyl Decals - priced by size, but usually $1-$5 - We can make permanent or removable (wall) decals. We have a ton of colors. - Different projects using the Silhouette. I suggest people search "Silhouette Cameo", "Silhouette vinyl" or "Cricut vinyl" (we don't have a cricut, but it gives good results) on Pinterest to see what can be done. Here's also a link that shows some of the different kinds of projects you can do with a Silhouette: http://www.silhouetteamerica.com/what-can-you-make.
I strongly suggest that people come with an idea of what they want to do. Pinterest has a TON of great project ideas. If people come with an idea of what they want to do, we can maximize the time we have in my classroom. Three hours isn't a ton of time. If you have any questions about what you can or cannot make, just ask!
