Beads + An Iron = Fun!

A modest turn out but that’s what I get when I hold an event on a Saturday afternoon at school but it was fun nonetheless.
An army of colourful ticks, a glow in the dark jellyfish money clip, an albino owl and ninja stars were just some of the things that were created mixed in with conversations about Jesus Camp, Nazism, Travel and America’s Next Top Model, cycle 10.

One of the girls mentioned that she liked the design of my posters and that’s why she came. Something like that will always put a smile on my face.

On another note, I went to see Eleanor’s Cabinet at the Open Eye Theater just a walk away from MCAD. If you say you’re from MCAD, tickets are only $10. It was a fun and beautiful show. It’s a mix of puppets and live actors. There was audience interaction and lots of hidden surprises. The play closes at the end of the month.

When you walk inside Open Eye Theater, it’ll seem like you entered another world.

This is from the Artistic Director about the show.
Upon reading the children’s poems and stories of the English author Eleanor Farjeon (1881-1965) I fondly recalled those special places, where as a child, I would imagine, play and dream. Those memories long tucked away inspired us here at the Open Eye to invite you to open your cabinet, and dream under the cherry tree, run around the mulberry bush and laugh on the starry floor.
