I literally- today- officially started a creative society in Queen's University Belfast.
We want it to attract guys and girls, and we want to keep it really edgy- PLUS we don't get funding for a year...

However we have access to a big space to work in, and to let everyone know about it we want to hold some kind of drop in event that would allow anyone to have a go and go home with something they've made.

I'm stuck for ideas! we need something:

-that would be great for guys or girls
-could be done very cheaply
-would be very edgy or cool (this is our first event, we want to set the right image)

Please help, all you amazing people,full of ideas!!

how about getting a bunch of old toys from a second-hand store (charity or otherwise), glue, and some paint (various colors) and have a "make a new toy" party.  There was an art institute place in Cincinnati, OH that would throw these kind of parties for kids and they were a real hit!

Are you into recycling?

These rainforest flowers are really beautiful:

What about a recycled Pizza

You could provide statistics from your local environmental groups and have everyone bring some trashy supplies to work with.

I don't know if this fits your bill, but maybe it will start the creative juices flowing. I'll be interested in hearing what you eventually decide to do.

Etching!  You'd need a laundry tub or sink of some sort though...but it is edgy, fun, and impressive!

(Hey, those are my rainforest flowers! Grin  How exciting, haha!)

At our university orientation thing, they had tie-dye stations set up, along with some painting stuff...fun kiddie stuff, but things that college students would get into, like spinart, and fingerpainting and stuff.  The tie-dye was awesome, though, and a lot of people got into it.  You could either bring your own tee shirt, socks, shorts, whatever, use your orientation shirt (pale colored, conveniently), or they had some cheap Hanes tees you could buy for $2-3 (cost, essentially).  You could also do macrame keychains or bracelets.
