Designer Carmen provides an opportunity to craft and create fashion jewelry and accessories using scraps of material, buttons, and yarn donated by other designers and crafters. She also partners with other artists to teach crafts and assist children and adults. The cost for a creation is no more than $5-10. Customers select and pays for up to 5 materials and are helped in making creations. Some customers also make things and leave them at the Creation Station to be sold. This event occurs at a table next to Crown Soul Creations designs each weekend of vendoring in the summer months. The first Creation Station was done at Brooklyn's Fulton Flea Market partnered with Shireen Dickson of Rowenzita Designs. Last summer the Creation Station teamed up with Nubia of Ziggy Angels Designs. For more info and to book this event contact firstname.lastname@example.org
