Are you a crafter? An artist? A teacher? A parent? Bring your paints, pens, fabrics, yarn, stickers, patterns, craft books, paper goods, stickers, and more to the next Craft Swap. Then take home what you need for your artwork, your lesson plans, your projects. While you’re there, learn a new skill, get to know other people in the neighborhood with similar interests, and score some artsy craftsy loot! It’s free and fun.
New Demos on paper and rose beads, making lip balm, things to make with a tshirt.
Sunday, March 18th, 1pm-2pm
Opalz, 719 Colorado Avenue, Palo Alto (behind Starbucks, at the corner of Middlefield) – upstairs
opalzoap.com (Please note, this upstairs location is not handicapped-accessible and may have aromas for those who are sensitive)
How does it work? Bring whatever supplies you have (no one will be turned away for being empty-handed) and come watch the demos (light snacks will be provided). At 1:15, grab a bag and start shopping for free. At the end, take home whatever’s left of what you brought (if anything!).
A caveat: you may need multiple bags!
