Google Craft & Draft Party caused creative chaos in Fred Aldous Manchester’s famous art, craft and design Mecca this week. Google City Experts gathered to celebrate the Google City Experts project.
We had the chance to make full use of the vintage photo booths, to step into the Google photo studio for a shoot with professional photographer +Toria Brightside. There were sample tasting sessions held by local craft ales suppliers and screenprinting workshops held throughout the night and risograph classes where everyone got fully into making art.
To finish off the night Google cracked out cakes from Manchester’s Home Sweet Home as spoken word artist Ben Mellor entertained us with his crowd-sourced poetry. Ben set up a little stand for guests to write down their favourite meals in Manchester and made a quick poem cleverly weaving the crowd sourced stories and memories together.
It was such a treat to explore Fred Aldous three floors of art supplies and meet a lovely bunch of fellow Google geeks. For more pictures from the evening you can visit +GooglelocalManchester Christine
