We live in a great city. It’s relaxed, it’s beautiful, and it’s full of inspiring, community-minded people doing wonderful things. One of the best things about summer in our city is Craft Lake City, an entire festival dedicated to our two favorite C’s: crafting and creating. Craft Lake City is literally full of hundreds of vendors showcasing handmade, DIY wares. It’s an amazing day of eye candy and inspiration, and the best one stop shopping ever since every purchase supports local artisans and crafters. And this year it’s going to be off the charts cool because…drumroll…we’ll be there! The Creative Capsule is joining the ranks of Craft Lake City! It only makes sense that Salt Lake’s most crafty event and only mobile crafting venue would team up!
We are excited to bring our brand of hand’s on fun to the event on August 11th. Now not only can you shop for crafty stuff, you can stop by the Capsule and MAKE crafty stuff yourself! We have dreamed up a great craft project that kids (of all ages) can make during Craft Lake City. Let us introduce you to LOGGERHEADS, unique block creatures made from reclaimed wood scraps sourced from local wood shop, Modern Union. This makes it a very green craft project-something we love.
Loggerheads are also super cute and provide plenty of opportunity for kids to add personality to their own piece by using their imagination to transform simple blocks of wood into a self portrait, an alien from planet Zorb, a new species of tree hugger…whatever they can dream up they can create with their individual Loggerhead. We hope that parents will get excited about their kids creating these since it’s a high quality craft and cute enough to be enjoyed for years to come- instead of yet another quick kids craft destined for the garbage after a few days.
We will be parked at Craft Lake City all day stocked and ready for people to stop in and make a LOGGERHEAD. (Bonus: we have air conditioning and your kids will be occupied!) We are offering a special introductory price for Craft Lake City only…make one Loggerhead for $15 or make two for $25. All the materials and instruction will be provided.
Want to take the fun of Loggerheads beyond Craft Lake City? You can! Loggerheads are the first in a line of creative DIY kits designed to encourage hand’s on fun at home, so you can snatch up one of our brand new Loggerhead kits at event, give it as a gift, share it with a friend, or make an entire Loggerhead family from the comfort of home.
And soon you will be able to buy all our signature kits online from this very website…we’re at work on our new shopping cart feature so stay tuned and get ready to have your crafty socks knocked right off! See you at Craft Lake City on Saturday!
