Ooh, what do we have here?
Major thanks to Faythe Levine for bringing this little nugget of joy into our lives. What is it, you ask? Oh, only a treasure trove of crafty DIY goodness. This binder came to us FULL of notes and photos and brochures from the (now-defunct?) Chicago-based Education Resource Center.
We’re not totally sure what they did there, but if the binder is any indication, they had awesome DIY get-togethers, threw rad kids parties, and generally made the late ’70s/early ’80s a good ol’ time. It looks like the folks behind the Center were ahead of their time in terms of recycling, upcycling, and understanding the life-changing qualitites of macrame. We’re definitely taking notes for our next projects.
Things we need to know: How did they make those awesome bubble machines (second row, right side), and just how cool can one man be (third row, left side)?
