Halloween craft fun at Drinking with Scissors

What could be better than crafts and craft beer?

The first Drinking with Scissors event took place on October 25 at the Social House. With Halloween right around the corner, spooky craft kits were available for participants to assemble while enjoying drinks with friends.

There were kits for making cute mini pinatas (complete with candy and treats!) and kits to design a mini felt monster. Both were a big hit!

If you missed this month’s edition, fear not, Drinking with Scissors will be continuing as a monthly event.

Light Up Your Halloween Night! (postponed)

Light up your Halloween with EL wire (electroluminescent wire)! EL wire is a thin copper wire coated in a phosphor that glows when an alternating current is applied. Very flexible, it can be easily sewn into costumes or accessories by hand. Bring along your costume, or any other project you would like to embellish!

Here is an example of an EL wire project:

In this workshop, you’ll learn to solder, join colours and add connectors to your EL wire for attaching to an inverter. All workshop materials are provided, including 10 feet of EL wire in 1 or 2 colours, splitter and small battery powered inverter (with microphone!) that will light up to 15 feet of EL wire.

About the Instructor: Michelle Clusiau is a YuKonstruct Core Team Member and an enthusiastic maker.
