|The kampsite ready for crafting.|
|Mikko and I made a very long papercut garland the day before the event!|
Different craft stations were prepared for the campers. Although fellow organizers and myself were busy manning the stations, I couldn’t help but rummage for extra materials and also make! 🙂 Everyone was excited because the crafts we taught that weekend were all new.
1. Leather purses
I was super excited to try this out! Luckily, I was able to make a purse. Maybe I should practice sewing? Haha 🙂
2. Washied DIY Watercolor Travel Kits
I set up this Hey Kessy Washi Station at the center of the craft grounds so everyone can get washi whenever they want! 🙂
The girls used it to personalize their DIY watercolor kits.
3. Washied hand-bound notebooks
I also gave a craft package to the tribe who did the best works – the Gupitupichacha. Yes, I belonged to that tribe. Haha! :p
4. Tribe flag making
4. Pretty braiding workshop in the morning:
5. Days before we left for Zambales, I had been collecting plants, herbs, and dried tea leaves for my assigned station – DIY iced tea. The fuss was all worth it because everyone enjoyed experimenting different combinations!
6. Batik Printing
The campers got to design their own scarves using pre-made rubber stamps, batik wax, and fabric dyes.
There were many other craft activities we did but unfortunately didn’t get to take pictures of!
Although I’m not much of a beach person, I definitely have had a great time crafting with others whom I share the same passion and interest with.
PS The second Craft Camp will be on August 17-18! For more details, go here 🙂
