It’s been two months since the first Craft Camp, and there’s still so much about it to share! Good weather and the beach were waiting for us in Zambales, and once there, it was a delight to see everyone enjoy doing what they came there to do – crafting. Here’s a brief rundown of activities we did during that weekend.

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! πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ™‚

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! πŸ™‚

The girls used it to personalize their DIY watercolor kits.

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.

Happy crafty campers! πŸ™‚ Thanks to everyone who shared this fun experience with me, Alessa, Mikko, and Isa!
