Last weekend, during our EGST Summer Bazaar, we also celebrated Etsy's 6th anniversary with a craft party. We had workshops all-round weekend, demonstrating techniques and crafts, such as origami flowers with paper, jewelry making, recycling and upcycling, millefiori technique with polymer clay, weaving,marbling and mokume with silver clay!
Everybody had great fun and the participation of the visitors was overwhelming!

Weaving and making flowers using a.... plastic fork

We created jewelry using old T-shirts or materials of old broken pieces of jewelry.
We also made cute objects for home decor using aluminum cans
