Winter Playday at the Soft Star Workshop
It's play time again!
Twice a year, the Soft Star elves set aside an afternoon for a playday. This is an day in which we stop working and are encouraged to engage in a creative project of our choice. We're allowed to use the equipment and materials at Soft Star and our activities don't need to have anything to do with work (though we are shoemakers, so lots of shoes usually come up).
The purpose of our playdays is to encourage creative thinking, develop new skills and to HAVE FUN! At the end of the day, we gather together and take turns talking about what we did—because what playday would be complete without show & tell? Sometimes the projects are developed into salable products (like Fitting Tassels), sometimes they teach us new ways to work with materials and reuse waste and sometimes they just make us happy with a fun day at work.
We had our first playday of the year earlier this week and we're excited to show you the results. Please bear in mind that these items are not for sale, but if you see anything you like then please let us know in the comments below.
