Did you know that The Cradle Project is still looking for cradles? It's true!
If you want to participate, but feel overwhelmed by the process, join other creatives this weekend for a Cradle Making Marathon! You need not be an artist to participate, though artists are strongly encouraged to come. Just bring some funky found/reused/recycled materials and your enthusiasm (kids love this project too!), and your cradle will spring to life between your fingertips. This is a FUN way to explore creativity and a pressing social issue. Come get inspired with members of your community!

The main Installation, which is on June 7th, 2008, will be accepting submissions until May 1st. Join hundreds of artists - nationwide and globally - in this passionate and visually powerful fund raising effort. All completed cradles will be included within the main Installation. Visit our website to learn more.

What to bring? Any found, scrap, recycled materials. (Tools to assemble materials are helpful too!) Examples:
- 2x4s from an old shed
- The old curtains you just replaced
- Rusting bucket from the back yard
- Old World Atlas
- Chicken wire
- Found milk crates
- Stones
- Branches, twigs, leaves
- Empty soda bottles
- Broken ceramic mug
- Plastic bags
- anything else you can think of!

We will be working OUTside, so bring plenty of water, snacks, and sunscreen as well.
Saturday and Sunday April 12th and 13th ,11 am - 4 pm.
Factory on 5th: 1715 5th St. NW, Albuquerque.
Questions? Comments? (505) 463-5824


FYI: The image above is a close up of a cradle made by weaving recycled plastic bags.

Cool weaving, I love to see how creative folks can be with different/funky materials. Your website link isn't working but I found it here.

Can you just do one day? I think this sounds like a good project and would like to participate but can only do Sunday.

You can DEFINITELY do just Saturday or just Sunday. Or you can come for just a couple of hours each day. There are no commitments here - just the goals of having fun and letting your creativity out to play. Please join us. We'd love that! And we'd love to include your cradle in our Main Exhibition.
