Rebel Craft Rumble
Admission: $10.00 general
$8 for SCRAP members and ReuseConex attendees
Mash up the “Mad Max” upcycling aesthetic with the gruelingly hilarious face-off of “Iron Chef,” add some of that quirky “Portlandia” flair, and you’ve got SCRAP’s annual Rebel Craft Rumble. On October 18, four pre-qualified contestants will compete in dramatic timed face-offs in front of a live audience to earn the title of Portland’s Craft Master. Crafty competitors will have a random selection of reused materials serving as the only weapons in their holster. The goal: turn waste into “Wow!”
Reigning Craft Master Diane Gilleland, of CraftyPod.com and formerly of the Church of Craft, will relinquish her glue gun to emcee this year’s event. “Crafting at high speeds, bribery, lots of trash-talking, beer, high drama—what’s not to like about Rebel Craft Rumble?” said Sister Diane.
