Fabric Dragons Workshop with Artist Colby Marie & Comedian Quinn Marchman
LAUGH YOUR CRAFT OFF
Laugh Your Craft Off is a series of virtual craft workshops where you can make things with artists while comedians tell jokes. We’ve paired up artists and crafters with comedians to take your grandma's craft circle to a whole new level. Your grandma never crafted on Zoom anyway. (But she would love it, you should invite her.) There will be laughs, there will be crafts, so grab yourself a drink and come hang out with us (virtually)!
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
In this workshop, we'll be playing with patterns, color, and wonder as we create our very own dragons out of fabric. This workshop is for all levels of experience. All you need is the desire to play, a needle, thread, scissors, safety/push pins and some fabric. Trust us, in this experience you can turn your childlike dragon doodles into a full sensory experience. Come play with us :)
This workshop will be hosted by local actor and improvisor, Quinn Marchman. So get ready to laugh your crafts off.
Suggested materials include:
- fabric (preferable with lots of colors and patterns)

ABOUT THE ARTIST: Colby Marie
Colby Marie is a queer writer, artist, educator who currently lives in Denver. A founding member of Secret Love Collective, one of Colby’s passions is to create healing experiences through art by facilitating experiences that foster play, curiosity and joy. Another of their passions as a former special education teacher is helping to create access to knowledge and wisdom that help create community, safer spaces to learn and work to dismantle systems of oppression (internally and externally) through play, creativity and education. Colby is currently working with Our Queer Body, an online learning platform to create content, lessons and support for queer teachers, healers, artists and wisdom holders. Independently, they are working on developing two podcasts. One is called Turning of The Bones and will look at the multifold ways in which we can heal and looks to deconstruct the notion of healing as a linear process. The other podcast is called Tip Toe which will be sharing queer voices in the form of storytelling and conversations with artists, activists and healers. Colby is also working on a collection of poetry, essays and a book of queer erotic fiction. “Shared experience in the form of art and story are one of the richest gifts I have been given in this world and I have learned so much from others' experiences, expression and stories I just want to play in the expansive and expressive human playground with others.” - Colby Marie
