Dorset Etsy Team Craft Party and Youtube Video 2015

On 5th June members of the Dorset Team got together for our annual Craft Party event. The theme for this year was Paper Taking Shape. Everyone had their own interpretation of the theme and we got creative and made everything from 3D paper butterflies to abstract paper weavings and collages to hanging paper decorations. Each member brought along different crafting supplies which we all of shared and had great fun trying new crafts and experimenting with different crafting tools and equipment.

The Craft Party was also a very exciting event as we were going to be filming the first ever Dorset Etsy Team video for the new Etsy Teams TV channel on Youtube which has just launched this month. We were very proud when our video was the first video to go up on the channel when it launched. Th

It was a fantastic evening and we all had great fun. Big thank you to everyone who volunteered their time as part of our Dorset Team Craft Party committee to organise the event this year. You did a wonderful job and the event was a great success.

Thank you also to Jamie, who did an amazing job filming the event and producing the Youtube video for the team especially against such a tight deadline!

Can't wait for next year's Dorset Team Craft Party.
