Craftical is an intense crafting challenge where participants have 30 minutes to create something from a big grab bag of crafty goodies from the Pittsburgh Center for Creative Reuse. 

Competitor ($25) and Spectator ($20) Tickets include a free Ace Hotel bar drink of your choice! Purchase tickets here:

This year’s theme is centered on appreciating the ocean and marine ecology. We are committed to sustainable practices that reduce plastic waste and creatively changing people’s thinking about consumption and reuse. 

Everyone votes on their favorite creation, and the top 3 nominees face off in a 5-minute craft blitz! The audience votes on their favorite creation, and then we will crown our first, second, and third place Ultimate Craftical Mega Stars and shower them with incredible prizes! Our Mega Stars get to keep their highly esteemed titles until the next Craftical!

You are highly encouraged to bring your own crafting tools, but we’ll have a few you can borrow! No plug in things, super loud things, or super dangerous things, please. 

Wear your under-the-sea inspired Halloween costume for a chance at extra prizes!
