This month Etsy would like us to take part in a bit of Craftivism.
As a group we wanted to come up with an interesting way to use our crafty endeavors to raise some money for a worthwhile local charity.
So we are very excited to announce our plans! Thanks to the lovely ladies at Super+Super ( Brighton's most friendliest creative hub) we will be taking over their shopfront and giving the folks of Brighton some LIVE craft action!
Drum roll...this is the plan:
On Saturday 29th March from 11am - 6pm we'll set up camp in the window of Super Super. From suggestions made at last months meet ups we've curated a line up of 14 Btn Etsy members - every hour 2 people will be in the window busy making something each, so at the end of the event we should have at least 14 pieces of work.
Each piece will become a raffle prize and all profits from the raffle will go to the local disability led arts organisation Carousel.
Super super are also very kindly letting us create a window display incorporating the wonders we've made and this will be on display for the WHOLE of April! We've decided to go with a subtle theme of the Etsy colours - Blue and Orange so it will be sure to everyone's attention.
The raffle tickets will be on sale for all of April so it would be great if you could all help spread the word. We'll kick off the raffle at the upcoming BTN Etsy talk at the Old Market, Hove 7th April and choose the winning tickets at Aprils monthly meet up.
If anyone would like to donate some more prizes ( handmade goodies obviously!) with the theme of blue and orange please let us know.
Full timetable of the event will come soon...!
