Pasta and Bean Mosaics • June 29th, 2016

undahwattah

This WednesdayJune 29th, 2016 from 9pm until midnight (or later) at Akbar, it’s CRAFTNIGHT. 
Project: Pasta Bean Mosaics    
$3 Processing fee, please
$4 Drink Specials at Akbar: The good life at a great price, guaranteed! 

Consider the lowly bean, and the lowly noodle.
Perhaps you’ve just been eating them mindlessly in a distracted way, but have you been really thinking about these food items carefully?
Perhaps you’ve just slurped ramen noodles into your face without a single thought about who made them, where they came from, and what they do for society.

You can keep walking past legumes and starches, or you can pause, and you can see these objects differently for a night, maybe even see them as ART.

Pasta and beans are usually unremembered, but not THIS night.

This won’t be the first time we’ve made mosaics with pasta and beans, and it won’t be the last. But even as I type this, in my studio, right behind me is a portrait of me that my friend, Kendra, made about 10 years ago, and it is one of the coolest things I own, and I cherish it. It’s not so much that it’s me, but the fact that she calmly sat there and put together a bunch of tiny, dried, perishable shapes together to make a visual idea.

I hope that pasta and bean mosaic-making interferes with your mind, and that your summer is enhanced by the experience.

See you at the Craft Table,

Summer Craft • June 22nd, 2016

birthday_time

This WednesdayJune 22nd, 2016 from 9pm until midnight (or later) at Akbar, it’s CRAFTNIGHT. 
Project: A Summer Craft and Shannon Dedman’s Birthday!   
$3 Processing fee, please
$4 Drink Specials at Akbar • Akbar, the cocktail company

Now that Summer arrived and burnt all our faces off (a fun preview for what will surely astonish us further in months to come) it’s time to get going on SUMMER CRAFTS!!!
And it’s also the birthday of Shannon Dedman, one of our CraftNight Lieutenants. She is brave and true and circling the sun for another illustrious birthday celebration! She loves a good craft, so that’s exactly what we’ll do.
I’m not totally sure what the summer craft is going to be, I’m keeping it loose.
It’s going to be a great time though, because we’ll have birthday treats for all, there will be merriment and smiles, and we will absolutely have crisp, ice cold air conditioning!!!

See you at the Craft Table,

JP Craft Captain
