For May 2014 Lucia is creating an outdoor extravaganza which will include mice on unicycles, swing dancing bakers, a May pole and 20′ golden eggs!! Want to be part of this! I certainly do. She has specifically asked SDA for our help, she needs creative people with a flair for fabric, us! There are two opportunities…
1. Lucia needs 6 – 10 volunteers to work on the day of the production, May 3, to help with set dressing, costume etc. No special skills needed, just your artistic flair!
2. Lucia urgently needs help to create large woven/knitted/crocheted (method is undecided yet) cradles in which the enormous golden eggs will be carried. You will work in Lucia’s studio in Redmond, help design and create the props. This is a wonderful opportunity to work on a large scale piece of public performance art.
If you are interested in either of the 2 opportunities, please email me as soon as possible. Since the performance is May, I need to let Lucia know really quickly whether we can help her out.
