SpaceCraftin' at the King Kong Bar

GoGo Craft Night at the King Kong Bar @ Escape From New York Pizza last Saturday was a wild success!  Over 30 people took shelter from the rainy night inside this cool pop-up bar to meet and make.  Felt was flying everywhere and people were inspired to create projects above and beyond the SpaceCraft Plushie Workshop.  Everyone did a great job!  Big thanks to Debbie Horn, owner of the King Kong Bar.  Here are just a few of the great projects:

CoachArt Crafternoon

Aura and her Super Family!

Last Sunday GoGo Craft volunteered with the non-profit organization, CoachArt. CoachArt is an organization in Oakland that provides free lessons in the arts and athletics for children and the families of children with chronic and life-threatening illnesses.  The main idea behind CoachArt is to provide these families with some distraction and a little break from the hospital environment.

What we made!

GoGo Craft and the talented Lauren Usher of Art is Moving joined forces on Sunday, March 4th to provide a few of the CoachArt families with an afternoon of fun and making. I was happy to lead my Make Your Own Superhero Mask Workshop and encourage the kids to find their super crafting powers. Art is Moving allowed the families to free their imaginations with paper, paint, markers, and crayons. I had a great time meeting these kids and families and seeing the different superhero masks they created. Thank you to CoachArt and their amazing team of staff and volunteers for setting up this great event.
