Join your fellow crafters to create new projects.DIY Nights

Take time out of your week to relax and craft with your peers. DIY Nights are a great way to engage with others while participating in a number of craft projects and happen as scheduled below.

Each event is limited to the first 30 CU Boulder students who register, although we also have a few “bring your own craft” spaces for each evening. Registration links are contained within each event below.

How/why do we select?
We love crafts. We want to ensure that as many students as possible get a chance to love crafts as well. To achieve this, we track attendance and cycle through who is registered. So if you attended a DIY Night already, you may not be immediately accepted to attend the next one. If space allows, we will certainly allow you to attend multiple events throughout the year.

Why is space limited?
We kick off every DIY Night with a bit of focused and intentional “get to know you” time, so that you can meet new people and make connections in the campus community. Keeping the event slightly smaller allows us to facilitate this in a more meaningful way.

Will I receive full event details?
Yes. Once your registration has been accepted you will be sent full details and location of the event.

Fall Dates

hatsJoin us and celebrate the new school year with some Buff pride. This DIY Night will be held on Tuesday, Aug. 23 from 5-7 p.m. in UMC 235. We will decorate baseball hats and bucket hats in CU colors (gold, white, black and gray). During this DIY night you can learn how to embroider your initials or the CU logo onto a hat. Or you can get creative and choose your own image. Afraid of needles? Not in the mood for needle work? No problem! You can also choose to decorate your hat by ironing on patches. Maybe even a combination of embroidery and iron-on patches! The possibilities are endless.
