Forget the candy necklaces, glowsticks, and happy face pills -- this rave is all about the crafts.
Join hundreds of local creative-types on Saturday November 17 at Scottsdale Studios for the annual PHX Craft Rave -- 10 hours of make-and-take madness.
The event, hosted by Kathy Cano-Murillo, aka The Crafty Chica, and Cyndi Coon, of Laboratory 5, features how-to projects including glittered shrines, graffiti totes, needle felting, screen printing, paper arts and others, technique tips from local artists, and free crafting stations (as well as a few drool-worthy giveaways for the first 100 guests).
