Past Virtual Event: Laugh Your Craft Off: Make Your Own Masks 4/28 @ 6PM
This variant is currently sold out.
Laugh Your Craft Off is a series of virtual craft workshops where you can make things with artists while comedians tell jokes. We’ve paired up artists and crafters with comedians to take your grandma's craft circle to a whole new level. Your grandma never crafted on Zoom anyway. (But she would love it, you should invite her.) There will be laughs, there will be crafts, so grab yourself a drink and come hangout with us (virtually)!
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Face masks have become an essential part of our wardrobes and daily lives. If you didn't hop on the mask-making train in spring 2020, your time has come! Join us to learn how to make your own face masks and add your unique creative flare, using materials that you probably already have at home!
Suggested materials include:
- Sewing needle
- Template (we will email everyone this to print at home!)
- Elastic for earloops (like this or like these)

ABOUT THE ARTIST
“Put Your Heart Into it!” For 25 year old artist Tyler Aguilar, putting your heart into it is much more than an expression. Since 2013, Tyler Aguilar has been creating artworks under the name Crispysz. His main subject of interest? A vivid heart-headed character with one eye. Although visual mediums like painting and illustration are his main means of expression, application of the idea and feeling to any subject is what is most meaningful. For the past several years, Tyler has been blurring the lines of his art by implementing sewing into the equation, adding the characteristics and aesthetics of his art into his fabric creations. Masks have quickly became a mandatory part of every day life, creating a high demand for masks. Tyler has taken this opportunity to create masks that are stylish and represent the characters of his works. He hopes that this can push people to dive deeper into his other works.
