Event description
Get your craft on (virtually!) at the craft-off! Create the greatest/weirdest thing you possibly can in just 30 minutes and win prizes!

About this event

Craftical is an intense crafting challenge where participants have just 30 minutes to create something from a big bag of crafty goodies from Creative Reuse. Everyone votes on their favorite creation and the top 3 finalists face off in a 5-minute craft blitz! The audience votes again, and then we crown our first, second, and third place Ultimate Craft Dazzlers and (virtually) shower them with incredible prizes!

This year's Craftical event will take place virtually via Zoom! Enjoy the magic of Craftical from the safety and comfort of your own home. Not able to make it to the scheduled Zoom event? Don't fret! You can still purchase Craftical bags and host your own mini Craftical with your pals. Each ticket includes 1 bag of materials, instructions, and the link to our Zoom event.

You may use your own crafting tools, but the materials must be from your Craftical mystery bag.

Costumes are strongly encouraged!

Creative Reuse is committed to making its programs accessible to all. Please email us at before October 21st (1 week before the event) if you require an accommodation or service to fully participate in this event. We will make every effort to make sure everyone is able to enjoy Craftical to its fullest.

This crafty fundraiser is brought to you by Pittsburgh Center for Creative Reuse. Your support helps us promote reuse and creativity all around Pittsburgh! Learn more about our nonprofit at if you're curious about what else we're up to!

P.S. Check out last year’s staff Craftical video! It’s a hoot!

Organizer of Craftical: An Intense Virtual Crafting Competition

Pittsburgh Center for Creative Reuse supports Pittsburgh's creative infrastructure by providing materials and inspiration for hundreds of amazing projects every year.  We have a shop where everyone can get resources for their artwork, inventions, homes, and classrooms, and we lead fun hands-on workshops to help you learn how "waste" can be fuel for art and education.  Our mission is to inspire creativity, conservation, and community engagement through reuse.
