We were eager to join our very first Etsy Craft Party since moving to Australia. The theme for this year was Kaleidoscope: Paper Taking Shape. We got a bit lost when we got to the Ian Potter Centre but we finally managed to locate the room after asking several museum staff.
The room was pretty packed and we were excited to make a little kaleidoscope. We quickly found a seat after going through registration.
The tools and materials were layed-out in front of us and there were several templates and instructions. It was challenging trying to cut out the inner parts out using a pair of scissors. Another lady in the group brought her own pen knife and she was able to make a few pieces quickly.
It was fun making my own little diamond kaleidoscope during the alloted hour. There were several successive sessions so we couldn’t really linger but it was fun talking to the people we were seated with and getting to know some fresh faces. We’re looking forward to the next Etsy Craft Party.
