Bird Costume Workshop
September 3, 2019$65 – $75
Get ready for the Earth Day Parade by making a beautiful bird costume! We will be cutting, sewing, gluing, buttoning, and glittering old stuff into magnificent costumes that will turn you into a Central Oregon bird! This workshop will be fun for all ages – tiny toddlers to adults.
Choose the bird you’d like your costume to represent ahead of time, or decide at the workshop. At Camp Fire, we love the sage grouse, golden eagle, mountain quail, spotted owl, belted kingfisher, raven, northern flicker, turkey vulture, and scrub jay, but feel free to look at other Central Oregon birds to figure out which one inspires you.
We encourage you to bring items that are destined for the thrift store or landfill – we want to create costumes with materials that are stained, ripped, torn, too small, or too large. You can even choose what kind of bird you’d like your costume to represent, and bring materials in those colors. If you have a large pile of materials that you would like to share with others, please bring it! We are happy to donate any unused materials to a thrift store when the event is over. We will be deconstructing and reconstructing these materials into fitted likenesses of Central Oregon birds so we can all fly in a communal flock during the Earth Day Parade!
Kids under 11 must be accompanied by an adult.
Members attend for free! Non-members pay $5 at the door. Or, join Camp Fire today and come to the workshop for free!
