Free Make-n-Take!

After perusing all of our vendors’ handmade goods, you just might feel inspired to follow through on the DIY ethic yourself. That is why every year The DIY Factory provides a free make-n-take table for guests of all ages to get their CRAFT ON.

Last year guests were invited to decorate their very own sugar skulls. Over 200 sugar skulls where distributed and decorated. This year we have decided to provide an assortment of materials, tools and guidance for YOU to MAKE your own unique cigar box alter or matchbox pocket shrine, which you can then TAKE home and enjoy.

Even though we will have a wide assortment of materials, we encourage you to bring your own bits and pieces with sentimental value to build an art piece truly special and personal to you. Also, donations of cigar boxes, match boxes, beads, trim, glue, paper, ephemera, and miscellaneous objects would be greatly appreciated.
(No glitter please or tiny beads please)

Glad we don’t have to clean up that mess again!
