Four friends once realized they weren't the only people with art drawers in their dorms, craft blogs bookmarked, and big dreams of making string lanterns one day. With no organization on campus available to support their hands-on artistic dreams, they set out to create one...thus, Cut the Craft was born! From it's first semester (spring 2011) Cut the Craft has more than tripled in members, gained a school-sanctioned budget, and began to make a name for themselves on SUNY Oswego's campus; we can't wait to see what the future holds for this club!
Since its start, Cut the Craft has been 100% student-led. Crafts are decided democratically through meeting-based votes, and, any fees which extend past our school-sponsored budget are raised through the sale of our member-made crafts. We are also a large proponent of humanitarian works: we work closely with the community to beautify it and bring joy to its members through our projects, as well as staying ecologically respectful in terms of the materials we look for and use.
So if you're sick of those pesky "please don't touch" signs at museums, then we suggest joining SUNY Oswego's one and only hands-on art club! We meet twice a month to hone our skills in the art of Shrinky Dinks, jewelry making and many other crafting mediums.
Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have! We hope to see you at our next meeting!
