Project: Wooden Amulet Necklace!
$3 Donation Please 
$4 Drink specials! Akbar: Treat Yourself! You Deserve It! 

I’m back in town, and ready to make wooden amulet necklaces with you! It’s time to take beads in hand, and paint too, and make/preserve for yourself a totem for the good ol’ summertime. Because now we are August, which means 31 days of hot living, which means you’ve got to look as hot as possible.

We have so much planned, we even have some really exciting extracurricular activities set for you, including helping out with some a community project with the LA Rocks (as in actual, sedimentary, made from the earth’s crust, rocks) and FIGURE DRAWING with Dr. Sketchy!!!

For now, however, we’ll set you up with a wooden shape and the hand drill, and you’ll paint/adorn the center of your necklace, and then fashion its strings with beads, baubles and what-nots from the collection I’ve prepared for you! It’s soooo much funnnn ahhhhh maaaaaa gahhhhhh you will like it. AND I’ll have the air conditioning on, you can be nice and cool, with a cocktail, and your friends, and the night’s gonna be perfect. Did you see the moon? Go look at the moon, then come see us.

See you at the Craft Table,

JP Craft Captain

In the words of Wendell Jones (a big fan of ours, which means we’re a big fan of his)

“For those of you who have never experienced it, a bunch or artists, inspired madmen and women and friends from all over the City of Angels create one video or spooky art project a day for all of October.
Each day you check in to be amazed. This is feminist friendly, LGBT positive, people of color loving, subversive creativity. And you don’t want to miss it!”

Necklaces of Success • August 17th, 2016

championyahhh

TONIGHT! Wednesday August 17rd, 2016 from 9pm until midnight (or later) at Akbar, it’s CRAFTNIGHT!
Project: Necklaces of Success
$3 Processing fee, please
$4 Drink Specials at Akbar: Stock up on Cocktails for the Back to School Season! 

We’ve got necklaces necklaces, that’s what we’ve got! I separated bead clusters into lil’ kits, and you can pick which one you want! The pieces are bright and plasticky and will delight your inner ferret (you know, bright shiny objects, OOOOH PRETTY!). To accompany the candy-like baubles in your personal necklace kit will be even MORE colorful kickshaw to pick from on the counter of craft smorgasbord supplies!

I do declare, should you make and wear a necklace at CraftNight, your creation will undoubtedly act as an external arbitrary force affecting human affairs! You WILL get the promotion, your ice cream WILL stay ensconced in its cone, love letters and accolades will pile up at your door! SUCCESS! Come in and make a thing!

CraftNight is your friendly, weekly, arty opportunity to get to know yourselves and others through casual creative pursuit. But were you aware that CraftNight works under the umbrella of an arts non-profit called SparkleBlob? Underneath that umbrella are other happenings throughout the year, and our next endeavor approaches for the fall season, it’s called Gothtober.

The Gothtober Countdown Calendar is a curated time-release flash-based online museum of 31 works of art by 31 different contributors. The official run of the show is from October 1st to the 31st, a new piece being revealed with each day of the month.The best way to see what it is though, is by visiting it!

Gothtober is looking for contributors, and applications are open until August 29th! We’re looking for recipes, comics, tiny weird short films, music, slideshows, animations, crafts, performance, and whatever else you can think up! It’s kind of like entering a film festival, but the content is multimedia.

Every age group and every level of experience is welcome to be a part of this annual collection of virtual treats, and we’re always looking for new blood. Find out more below:
