DIY Salon at MAD

Welcome to the craftiest season of the year. If it’s not whipping up your Halloween Costume, it’s creating a holiday meal, warming up with a ball of yarn, or planning a party to share the spirit of crafting with your friends. I’ve been up to the latter!

Join MAD and the Church of Craft for a night of hands-on making, music, food, and drink in celebration of the Museum’s current exhibition Second Lives: Remixing the Ordinary. Local do-it-yourself artists (your fellow CofCers!) will demonstrate their personal skills and help guide you in creating your own projects. Techniques will range from making notebooks out of junk mail to making yarn out of old sweaters, among other contemporary twists on classic crafts. In addition to do-it-yourself workshops, the DIY Salon will include handmade snacks, craft beer, and a live DJ. Guided tours of Second Lives will be available. Over 200 people did-it-themselves at this event last year, so don’t miss out this time around!
