yesterday i went to my neighborhood anthropologie store and participated in one of their holiday workshops! we helped the display coordinator (a super nice gal) make some fun crafts that will be used in their holiday displays and windows. apparently they have done these in the past, but this was my first time hearing about them. (it might have to do with the fact that for the past four years i haven’t live very close to one.) you can look for scheduled events on their website. i had so much fun that i signed up for next week’s event.
we made polyhedral ornaments our of bristol spray painted with a lace pattern, yarn fringe in pretty wintry colors, and birch logs. how cool are the logs?! we glued strips of birch bark to a chicken wire frame encased by masking tape. i love the crafty but still convincing result!
it was just so inspiring- i wanted to go home and craft for the rest of the day! (actually, i did – ha!) and it was lovely conversing with all the ladies i met while there. so fun. goodness. what if theaters did community workshops like this? i don’t think it could work for every theater company, nor could it work for every show, but it would be a fun experiment, don’t you think?
i cannot wait to see the final displays. i will post pictures for sure!
have any of you ever participated in one of the workshops? what did you make?
