Four teams will compete in a battle of high pressure creative problem solving and artistic wit to become the next Extreme Ultimate Supreme Craft Masters in SCRAP Humboldt’s seventh annual Rebel Craft Rumble. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with a Happy Hour! Mingle with the teams, grab some grub, quench your thirst with drink specials, bid on silent auction, and more! The lights will dim and the competition starts at 7:30 p.m.

Rebel Craft Rumble is a live action creative competition mash up of TV shows like Iron Chef and Making It. All materials in the challenges are reused and gleaned from the unique and varied inventory at SCRAP Humboldt’s creative reuse center. This 18+ fundraiser for SCRAP Humboldts educational programs sells out so grab your tickets early. The challenges will be titillating, the pressure will be palpable and the fun will only happen once a year!

SCRAP Humboldt was created in response to the closing of the oldest nonprofit recycling center in the United States. United by their passion for environmental education and the arts, Tibora Girczyc-Blum, Patti Johnson, and Spring Garrett began the grassroots journey to become a member of the SCRAP network. What began as a community materials exchanges, quickly grew into a storage unit of materials and in 2012, the first SCRAP pop-up shop opened up. After the pilot project was a success, the doors opened in May of 2012.
