Tribal Crafternoon with Deep Roots Dance

Join us for Tribal Crafternoon–a series of workshops where we give our hips a break and work with our hands.

We’re holding two afternoon workshops in December covering some fun, crafty projects to give a boost to your tribal dance wardrobe.  Enjoy an afternoon of hands-on creativity with us!  Only $25 per workshop, or $45 for both.

If you are like me and like to give gifts of experiences for the holidays, this is a great opportunity to treat a bellydancer in your life to some fun workshops they are sure to love.

Tribal Bellydance Belt-Making
December 10, 2011
Phinney Neighborhood Center, Room 1

Join us to learn how to make a fitted tribal bellydance belt, including simple custom-fit patterning to both sewing and no-sew options for creation and embellishment, as well as a brief tutorial on tassel-making.  We will also look at some other hip wrap and sash-making techniques, and discuss creative layering for the stage.  By popular demand, we will revisit the creative skirt-tucking techniques we discussed at this summer’s costuming workshop, and explore ways to use multiple skirts and lengths of fabric to add more lush layers of color and texture to your look.

Everyone will walk away with a custom-fit pattern to take home and make their own belt with, and a handout which outlines recommended materials and techniques we have covered for later reference.

Hair Gardens – Flower-Making & Headdresses
December 17, 2011
Phinney Neighborhood Center, Room 1

Learn how to create incredible hair flowers and headbands with your own two hands!  This workshop will introduce techniques for creating unique and beautiful hair embellishments using silk flowers, glue, glitter, and found objects.  Some complimentary materials will be provided, as well as some more lavish and hard-to-find options for sale. There will be some brief demonstrations on how to mix and match various elements for greatest effect on stage (hint: in tribal, less is not necessarily more!). And best of all, at the end you will get to take your gorgeous, blingy creations home with you! Some snacks and soda will be provided, but feel free bring any other snacks you would like to share while we to sit together crafting and chatting.
