Four teams enter, one team leaves ... with the title of Extreme Ultimate Supreme Craft Master. Who will emerge victorious, battle scarred and war weary from SCRAP Humboldt's Rebel Craft Rumble this year? The creative reuse center is back at the Arcata Playhouse with another high-speed competition and fundraiser on Saturday, Oct. 18 at 8 p.m. ($15).
The yarn and glitter cage match is broken into 10-minute rounds, each with a mission and a surprise selection of materials. Last year's competitors the Sparkle Ninjas and the Arcata Playhouse Arts Annex All Stars are back in the ring against the Serious Scavengers and Wrapper's Delight. Their creations will be judged on technique, utility and artistic prowess by the current Extreme Ultimate Supreme Craft Masters, The Inkstravagant Ladies, Mike Sargent and Rutabaga Queen Taylor Depew, with color commentary by host Mike Dronkers. There'll be music by Merrick and plenty of food and drink to fuel the fight.
Enough talk. Let's craft.
