A craft creation made at Jumpers For Goalposts

Put together back in the heady days of Jul 2009. Lord knows what brief these crafters were fulfilling, but look at the wonder they’ve created. Beautiful. If you’d like to create something similarly bizarre/disturbing/blasphemous then join us on the 3rd Thursday of the month and get busy with the googly eyes and glue.

Giraffe-ting

Thursday 19th August
From 8.30pm (but you can eat / drink / chill in the Alley Cafe from as early as you like)

The Great Jumpers For Goalposts Giraffeting Competition, with Live Music From Nick Jonah Davis

 Every month at Jumpers for Goalposts we hold a crafting competition where we provide a craft-buffet of paper, pens, googly eyes and all manner of brightly coloured materials aimed at appealing to 3-7 year olds. 
 
The competition is often very fierce and we use an independent judge (the performer of the night) so that when someone makes a costume, Tony Sourgrapes can’t come up to us with his pointy aggressive body language saying ‘you said in the instructions to make a ‘thing’ dressing up isn’t a ‘thing’! [really happened].
 
This month we craft local……..
 
                                                                                           ……..…but think Global!

 
We’re sticking our ‘necks’ out and joining in with http://www.onemilliongiraffes.com/ to help them collect ONE MILLION pictures of giraffes.  Who knows why? They hardly seem to, but they’re going to need a LOT of blu-tac!
 
They have about 150 days left to do it and as long as 65,000 people come to Jumpers for Goalposts – They’ll be able to kick back and relax with it in the bag!
 
So, come along, bring any CHEATING supplies you like, orange wool, yellow material, natural growing bamboo canes, as long as it doesn’t originate from an actual living giraffe it’s all good!
 
As ever, there will be MEGA PRIZES ™ for the best ‘Giraffeters’ and you’ll get to join the hall of fame on this gradually emerging blog, as well as having all your entries submitted to the One Million Giraffes website.

That’s NOT ALL! We’ll also have LIVE IN CONCERT Music from Nick Jonah Davis who you may know from  synth-toting legends ‘Escapologists’ and his solo electronic project Stone 3.  Nick has recently produced his first solo acoustic album and we’re excited to hear what he’s come up with.
