Together with our Crafting Skillshare event, Common Root is hosting another Lincoln Repair Cafe from 7:30 – 9 PM on Monday, August 25th. Details on each of the activities are below:
Crafting Skillshare – Join us at Common Root to work on your crafty project of choice. Share your technique and/or your supplies, learn about other people’s projects or simply join in the merriment of being surrounded by locally crafted items and the creative folks who make them.
If you’d like to participate, we’re asking folks to create playing card art for our artist trading card fundraiser.
Use the medium of your choice on a playing card. Collage, paint, fabric, beading, stitching, poetry, etc. Donate your card for a future First Friday event to raise money for Common Root.
You must use a playing card. We have plenty to share, and you can put your contact / studio information on the back to advertise your own work. This is a spin-off of artist trading cards. We are recycling incomplete decks of cards by using each card as our small canvas.
Deadline for returning completed cards to Common Root is September 10, 2014.
Repair Cafe – It’s free! It’s practical! It’s fun!
Lincoln Repair Cafe is ready to mend clothing–FREE–at Common Root – Mutual Aid Center! Drop by with your mend-able items. We can mend or advise about mending clothing, stuffed toys, totes, backpacks, household linens, etc.
