Clothespin Noteholder Magnet Craft! • August 16th, 2017

This Wednesday, August 16th, 2017 from 9pm until midnight (or later) it’s CRAFTNIGHT!!!
Project: Clothespin Noteholder Magnets!  
$3 Donation Please 
$4 Drink specials! Akbar: The Bar of Your Heart!

Notes notes notes, little pieces of paper all over the place and nothing to control it!
Whatever will you do?
However shall you survive?
Never fear, CraftNight is here, with a remedy for wayward papers! Come on in, paint up your clothespin, apply a magnet, and voila: notes organized!

NOW THEN: A lot of hate has been bubbling to the surface of our nation, in a way that is terribly discouraging. Please come in and use your Akbar, your CraftNight. We are a location specializing in tolerance and acceptance. Akbar is a space of love, and very reasonably priced cocktails.

We’re a fabulously queer community hub, and we’ll not let the vile dumbness of hatred and bigots seep into our sequins, no we will not. We are not strangers to this battle, and we’re doubling down to stick up for ourselves and each other. Because the shit storm isn’t on the way, it’s not coming, it’s here.

The Southern Poverty Law Center lays out some of the solemn details of how the radical right was more successful in entering the political mainstream last year than half a century. Also, check out Dr. Walter D. Greason’s compiled materials from a class he taught on collective racial violence that can help us understand the danger that Charlottesville represents.

We have creativity, we have impact. Our numbers are huge, and our voices are LOUD. CraftNight has been rocking our first amendment rights with Protest Poster Painting Parties and other forms of Craftivism. Stay tuned for us to supply you with continued ways to unite for social justice and the planet at large.

But mainly we offer respite: an air-conditioned intermission from the 24-hour news tickers tickering tenacious tensions. Come in and have a cocktail, some art therapy, some goodness.

See you at the Craft Table,

JP Craft Captain

Project: ROCK Painting Party with The Los Angeles Rocks!

So there are these people in your town who paint sweet messages or images on rocks and place them in spots around Los Angeles. Tonight, you’ll do the same! Come on in and paint/preserve your rock and then leave it somewhere in the city (according to the Los Angeles Rocks official guidelines) and share it with us where you left it!

That’s pretty much all there is to it, I’ll have lots of fun glittery, googly arty bits for you to decorate and paint with, quite a compelling jamboree to attend.

Wooden Amulet Necklace! • August 2nd, 2017

TONIGHT! Wednesday, August 2nd, 2017 from 9pm until midnight (or later) it’s CRAFTNIGHT!!!
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
