As part of Craft + Work’s second anniversary, I participated in their virtual pop up! Craft + Work is a maker and workshop space in Pacifica, California. I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to teach my felt and fiber workshops in their space over the last year, and though I’ve never actually gone to the beach in Pacifica, I always enjoy every visit to the studio! 🙂
At last year’s celebration there were seven vendors. This year, 20! And 10%+ of sales in our shops over the weekend were donated to two local organizations: Pacifica Resource Center & Pacifica Community in Action. In total we collectively raised and donated $800. Thank you to our supporters for shopping handmade and local!
I set up my craft booth in my apartment! As part of the virtual pop up many of us hosted virtual shopping events or interactive crafty sessions – like my felt flower craft along! There was also a demo on how to make cold process soap with Starblast Co. Ooh, I also made lots of special Mom’s Day felt flower bouquets for my shop, too.
And though I totally miss vendor trades (if you know, you know), I did still get to support some amazing makers and score some awesome fun treats. A tote from Rennie (she even sent me a waxed canvas cleaner) and soaps from Starblast Co. (omgah they smell so good!).
Congratulations on two years, Craft + Work!
PS: I’m also excited to report that Craft + Work is starting to host virtual crafty workshops and selling DIY kits! Check them out – you might see a familiar craft or face (it me!).
