Tapigami! Make awesome art with tape

It's back to crafting in August with a meetup about materials - practice Tapigami, a method of creating beautiful structures out of ... tape.

Tapigami is a beautiful art form created by California artist Danny Scheible.  If you went to Maker Faire this year, you might have seen his elegant, life-size city made from masking tape by dozens of people.

In this meetup, we'll learn the basic technique of rolling straws, and making cones, boxes, and cylinders. 

After that - you can use your imagination: make a village, a critter, or a scene from your summer vacation.

You can order a book or learn more at the Tapigami website.

If you have some interesting tape you'd like to contribute, bring some.  We'll provide masking tape and a variety of other samples to try.  

Each person will receive a roll of masking tape to practice with.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
