Make adorable little dolls from upcycled champagne corks!

About this event
Join ACR for a morning of reuse imagination! Champagne corks make the perfect doll base – from warrior to bride, a chef to a sheep you can literally make anything out of these! Fun to make, these can be given as gifts or used to brighten your own house!

Kids must be accompanied by a ticketed adult.

Artist Bio:
Preeti Agrawal is a craft blogger and watercolorist. In her work, she is concerned with experiments that combine old and new. She is drawn to the modern craft sensibility but at the same time the traditional arts call to her. She loves the interplay of the two as she adjusts traditional arts to new mediums and materials.

A concern for the environment and a reverence for nature pervades her daily life and her work: she saves fabric, remnants, beads and the castaways of modern living and incorporates them in her work. Making things by hand gives her joy, upcycling, salvaging and repurposing materials gives her joy, and as a result her crafting world is the perfect marriage of two!
