Because girls just want to have fun, Naper Settlement has planned Craft Night from 6:30-9:30PM Sat., Oct. 13.
Organizers invite friends for a great outing at Naper Settlement’s first-ever craft night for an evening of crafting and socializing. More than a dozen fun and easy craft stations will be set up throughout the historic site.
“With the growing popularity of sites such as Pinterest and Etsy and a movement to reclaim, reuse and recycle, these crafts will appeal to the do-it-yourself creative side in all of us,” said Jenn Edginton, Learning Experiences Coordinator. “With all the crafts there are to do in a three-hour time span, this is more like speed crafting.”
Participants can choose from more than a dozen crafts including creating a fall-inspired pin using needle felting, led by artist Lela Luetger. Adagio Teas will have a station set up to make customized tea blends using a black, green or rooibos tea base. There also will be three longer crafts that are timed throughout the night including crayon art, making a teacup candle, and a bandbox with limited spaces available.
Other crafts include making a t-shirt scarf, designing a wire wrap ring, dyeing a silk scarf, creating a sugar scrub for the bath, even repurposing a washer into a metal stamped necklace in the Blacksmith Shop and much more.
Light refreshments will be served. Prizes and giveaways will be offered throughout the evening. The fun adult activity is geared for a group night out with friends or time to make some new friends. Participants who wish to learn the technique and make a t-shirt scarf should bring a large or extra-large t-shirt to shred.
Tickets are $40 in advance and $45 on the day of the event. Advance reservation is recommended as there is limited space available at the door.
