Amigurumi is the Japanese art of making cute little stuffed animals or dolls with crochet or knitting. You might have seen them around before; they’ve become a bit of a hype around the internet and anime conventions these past years. There’s almost no end to what kind of stuffed toys you can make with just a crochet hook and some yarn: Ranging from cupcakes to tentacle monsters to dolls of your favorite anime character.
Have you ever wanted to learn how these things are made but dismissed the thought because you thought it might be too hard? Then don’t worry! Even though amigurumi might look complicated to make at first, the basics are actually pretty easy to grasp. In this workshop the crafty ladies from Tegendraads will teach you the basic crochet techniques used in amigurumi and help you make your very own adorable amigurumi owl keychain.

Cosplay Act Competition (CAC)
Darkness Rising: a perfect opportunity for the perfect act. The howling of wolves, a flash of lightning and a lone aristocratic figure. He is sipping the purplish-red wine from a goblet, appreciating its delicate taste. But are you sure it's wine in there? And then the world seems to... tilt and nothing is as it seems.
Men in black, not holding a noisy cricket gun but small things with lots of pointy ends. Their secret mission is suddenly interrupted by guards, raising their katana to fend off the night-time assault and a choreographed skirmish ensues.
