Bring your fabric sheers, your sewing machines, or just your good company and willingness to help out to this crafting event for 2nd Floor Rear 2017: RITUAL. We’ll be gathering at Hume to make DIY pennant banners that’ll mark the festival trail the following weekend.

FYI: the banners are super easy to make, so if you can cut in a straight line, you’re qualified to help out!

Some snax and drinx provided, but feel free to bring a lil extra for the group!

All ages and skill levels welcome.

***Big ups to Hume for providing space!***
