On the Weekend of Aug. 12, Localworks participated in Wheat Ridge’s own Carnation Festival, one of the longest running festivals in Colorado. To celebrate the festival’s namesake, Localworks hosted a paper flower crafting activity at their booth.
Festival attendees of all ages worked together to roll paper blanks to create over 100 flowers to adorn the Localworks sign. The tools and materials for the activity were provided in part due to the newly blossoming makerspace program (learn more at: https://wearelocalworks.org/makerspace). The experience of coming together as a community to craft a work of art is a perfect example of Wheat Ridge’s creative spirit. Something Localworks hopes to further grow in the near future.
