The Craft Off!
On Sunday evening me and some friends went to the Craft Off, an event held at the Malt Cross here in Nottingham. It's organised by Donna from Spinster's Emporium and involves different teams being given various crafty items and a brief which must be completed within a few hours.
It was lots of fun and the first brief was to make GIANT origami.. see our efforts below (I made a bird, above, and Ian made a whale!) Afterwards they were all hung on pieces of string from the balcony.
The final brief was to make something based on April Fool's Day Pranks. However we didn't really read the brief properly and ended up choosing to recreate the Moon Landing (which could've been faked, right?!) which involved making an astronaut outfit, a video camera and boom mike.. We didn't win in the end but we did get a special mention for our onstage performance hehe.
