CRAFTNIGHT CAMPFIRE RESORT MARCHES ON!
As ever, CraftNight continues to be a source of inspiration for high society ideals, especially since we turned into a resort for the summer season. Tonight we embrace coasters! The very first coasters, or beermats, or whatever you wanna call ’em, were made in the 1880s, and the function of coasters has not changed. Basically, they protect surfaces, like your table, from moisture. Tonight’s coasters are made from cork, which means they are pretty high-end, and are sure to impress guests when you put these on display.
Take your handy-dandy coaster, and adorn it with felt, OR use magazine scraps (we will have plenty) to Mod Podge them and make them be awesome. Mod Podge is sort of like glue, and sort of like not, it’s sticky, but when it dries, it forms a protective cover over the scraps you’ve decided to immortalize.
We have Jan Whetstone to thank for Mod Podge, a substance that we officially decided is one of the most feminist craft supplies you can use. Jan mixed up the recipe for Mod Podge in her garage in the 60s, she was an advocate for women’s rights in the business world, and developed the most widely used, versatile substance for decoupage in history. She passed away in 2013 leaving behind a legacy of wonderful craft recipes and products, and we will salute her tonight by making coasters!
Also, are we still handing out badges to commemorate your resort and can you earn them all? YES! Collect them while supplies last! Lastly, we will have very special guest and camp counselor, Alex Kenefick, presenting some camp exercises, if you complete them, you’ll get the best badge yet! Read more below if you want to know more.
See you at the Craft Table,
JP Craft Captain
