About me:The 2nd Annual DIY Factory was a blast! ..
WHAT IS THE DIY FACTORY?The DIY Factory is an annual celebration of creativity that brings together a diverse group of cutting edge independent craftsters, artisans, designers, and musicians to showcase their talents to the general public in a market type setting. It gives many people their first opportunity at being a and allows those that are "old hands" at selling their goods a fresh and new type of market to connect to the community... The 2nd annual DIY Factory showcased 50+ alternative arts and crafts vendors epitomizing the Do-It-Yourself ethic... The fashion show featured a range of emerging to established local designers from practical to fantastical... Established local musicians from an assortment of genres provided the musical entertainment, and a local dance troupe performed for the audience as well... This year we added a Community Information and Action Area to our set up. There, you were able to obtain information from local organizations that reflect the DIY ethics, promote the arts, fashion and music scene, as well as non-profits... We even provided materials and direction at a free Make-n-Take table for guests of all ages to get their craft on!.. In addition Greater Austin Garbage Arts hosted a Swap-a-Rama on site with guest designers to help patrons recycle donated clothing into unique fashions... The first 100 guests received a free hand silk-screened Goody Bag stuffed with some great loot from our vendors and sponsors!..
