This week on Chatty Crafties we’re whettin your whistle for the holidays. You’ll remember Genevieve Saenz from way back in episode one. She and Amber have been offering holiday arts workshops to the public for years: crafting sessions that exercise the creative and emotional muscles often left untouched throughout the holiday hustle. So, before you start thinking about what to bring down from the attic and how many presents you’re planning to crochet, consider taking a different approach to the most wonderful time of the year.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about Ghosts: An Evening with What Haunts You on October 28th in a to-be-determined park location in Austin.
Please start sending in your handmade Halloween costumes of your childhood or that you made for your own kiddos. Send them to email@example.com.
Check out Fortlandia, the exhibit at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildlife Center open Sept. 29 to Feb 28. Angelica and Matt’s fort is called Blanket Fort; photos below. Please tag either @chattycrafties or @openenvelopestudio so that we can share it on the Open Envelope Studio Insta stories.
