#mightyuglyhawaii Thank You!

Posted on by MK Carroll

Thanks to Interisland Terminal and the Kaka'ako Agora, a Make It Mighty Ugly workshop was held in Honolulu on June 23, 2015. 

What are the creative monsters that hold you back? One of mine is collecting beautiful yarns and then not using them, saving them for "later". As if there's going to be some kind of shortage.

Thanks to my co-host Trisha, we had an awesomely hideous buffet of craft supplies that included wiggly eyes, hairy yarns, and lots of fabric in various prints and textures, in addition to cardboard and paper. After a quick Skype chat with Kim Werker about how making something ugly set her creativity free, participants scooped up supplies and set to work with glitter glue, hot glue guns, staplers, and their imaginations. There was a lot of ugly happening, and it was a beautiful thing.

Survey: Honolulu Yarncrafting Workshops

Posted on by MK Carroll

Do you live in Hawai'i? Would you like to help me out? I'm drafting proposals for knit/crochet/spin/yarn dye workshops in the Honolulu area, and I'd like to be able to narrow down my focus as well as have something to show potential event sponsors. Filling out this short questionnaire (4 multiple choice, 2 short text) would help a lot! I won't share your name or email address with anyone without your permission, and you can remain anonymous if you prefer. 

If you have any questions, there's a section in the questionnaire for that, or you can email me (info@mkcarroll.com).
