CNAP was pretty amazing last night

I’ve been neglecting this blog and I heard all about it at last night’s meeting. I promise not to forget about it again! Anyway, last night’s meeting was pretty amazing. The turn out was pretty nice and everyone was busy on something. Nicole taught Richard how to knit (finally!) and I did a really quick workshop on how to make super simple/super effective bunting out of newspaper. You can see a tutorial here. A group of talented ladies and I ended up cutting out, painting and stamping 35 triangles for a large piece of bunting (i’m not 100% on these terms yet lol). We rubber stamped random words given to us by other CNAP members, song lyrics and words of encouragement on one side of every triangle. Justin from Broken City Lab showed up and talked to a few of us about what we could do over the summer. I showed him our bunting and he was like HANG THIS OUTSIDE NOW FOR TWO SECONDS AND TAKE PICTURES. So we did and it looked amazing. It was really nice to do a group craft like this. CNAP sometimes feels really disjointed and impersonal, so it was really nice sharing supplies and ideas. I definitely want to do more crafts like this in the future. Feel free to leave any craft suggestions in the comments! But first, check out this bunting:

We had to move it against a wall because it was way too windy to take pictures. photo by laura.
