Day Of The Dead Craft Night: Highlights

Our Day of The Dead/Halloween Craft night was the perfect excuse for Momtaz to make and wear the biggest Sugar Skull Necklace ever!
The plastic 'door hanger' base came from the 99p shop, while the bling came from her own personal collage corner.
Speaking of which, our own Collage Corner was filled with themed goodies to make like...
Day Of The Dead Shrines...
Spooktastic masks...
Sugar skull brooches...
And Trick Or Treat Bags!
We were joined by Katie from ArtyardHandmade who are based in Richmond and run craft workshops and parties for children and adults, who led the session on making felt brooches.
And the amazing Karen and Jo from Use It Up Wear It Out who led a
 Day of The Dead mask workshop.
 A seriously spooky soundtrack was provided by our resident DJs Dan and Isabel
While visuals came courtesy of Beetlejuice (remember do not say his name 3 times!)
We welcomed our first Work Trip - four colleagues came along for some post-work crafting
Wonder if the rest of the team recognised them in the morning?
What an amazing mask! 
Here are some of the other creations from the night:
Venetian masks
Owl masks
Collaged masks
Lots of friends crafting together
A gift to be donated to Death by Burrito
And a skull who looks like he's ready for Movember!
Plus more collagey goodness!
Oh an a witch dropped by too!
Thank you to everyone who braved the cold to come down!
What an amazing night. Also big thanks to Obie for helping set up and get well soon to our Becky.
See you in November for our Winter Wonderland for a knitting and weaving extravagaza!
