Question: what’s better than crafting?
Answer: crafting in company. If your idea of heaven is to craft alongside other makers then you HAVE to get involved with this year’s Etsy Craft Party.
Etsy Craft Parties are a global celebration of meeting and making. Every year communities from around the globe attend and organise local gatherings – in 2014, more than 8,500 people took part. And Mollie Makes is joining in as a partner this year!
The sixth annual Etsy Craft Party will take place on Friday 5 June and Saturday 6 June, with 2015 marking Etsy’s tenth anniversary of connecting people around the world to make, sell and buy unique goods. This year’s Etsy Craft Party theme, Kaleidoscope: Paper Taking Shape, aligns perfectly with this milestone.
Kaleidoscopes represent many individual pieces coming together to create something beautiful — much like the dynamic shops that make up Etsy. Try your hand at three different collage projects, such as the one pictured by Clare McGibbon and Nicole Licht for Etsy, which also features in Mollie Makes 54 (on sale 29 May 2015).
