Community of crafters, artists, makers

When I spotted the delightfully designed postcards for this Modern Makers Festival, I had a feeling we’d found our people.

As lifelong crafters, we were thrilled to find an event where you get to create art with other people who like to create art too!

Mama and I made beaded bracelets, wool felt necklaces, and customized bath salts. We painted leather ornaments and wood laser cut pins, planted succulents, and we tie-dyed handkerchiefs. It was quite the day.

We were very impressed with this free-to-attend festival and the many DIY activities. We enjoyed doing a variety of different crafts and meeting so many local artists. It was absolutely wonderful to create together! We fell in love with wool felt crafting and can’t wait to do more!

Special thanks to the art and craft vendors behind the free crafting stations we visited: MorninGloria’s DIY beaded stretch bracelets, Flourish DIY succulent terrarium, Dharma Trading shibori tie-dye, Hapertas leather ornament painting, The Goat Farm DIY bath soak, Tiny Terrains by Annie mini succulent pot, Chimera Arts painted laser cut pins, and Cast Away Yarn Shop felt wool jewelry.
