On the weekend of August 12, Localworks participated in the Wheat Ridge Carnation Festival, one of Colorado’s oldest festivals. To celebrate the festival’s namesake, Localworks held a paper flower-making activity at its booth.
Festival attendees of all ages worked together to roll paper blanks to create more than 100 flowers to adorn the Localworks sign. Tools and materials for the activity were provided in part through the new makerspace program (learn more at: https://wearelocalworks.org/makerspace). The experience of coming together as a community to create a work of art is a perfect example of Wheat Ridge’s creative spirit. Something Localworks hopes to further develop in the near future.
