We like this idea because it's so versatile. From face painting to woodcarving, just about everyone has a hobby, and most lend themselves to demonstrations or sharing. You don't necessarily have to have a lot of space to make a craft show/exhibition happen, either. From conducting a jewelry making demonstration in an unused corner of your local nail salon (with permission), to putting up a quilt display in a local park by draping quilts across ropes strung from tree to tree, there are hundreds of ways, large and small, that you can get crafty with community events. This is a great time to discover how talented your friends and associates really are.
