Snowman Box Etc. • January 31st, 2018

TONIGHT! Wednesday, JANUARY 31st, 2018 from 9pm to midnight (or later) it’s CRAFTNIGHT! 
****Project: Snowman Box and MORE! 

*******Drink Specials for your face! Tasty Times!   
*********$3 suggested donation, thank you for supporting the arts!  

I have these adorable but no-frills snowman boxes that are kind of TOO EASY to make. This means an extra side project will also be offered, because honestly, in the time you have to make this craft, you won’t even be halfway through your vodka soda, or redbull, or whatever you’re drinking!

 

2018 marks the 16th year of CraftNight in service, and tonight will be a Full Blue Moon Winter Session, so I’m quite giddy about that! Let us celebrate kinship and having January togetherness while making snowman boxes when it’s been weirdly hot outside! Maybe if we make enough snowman boxes, winter will come back and be cold!

See you at the Craft Table,

JP Craft Captain

Suncatchers • January 24th, 2018

This Wednesday, JANUARY 24th, 2018 from 9pm to midnight (or later) it’s CRAFTNIGHT! 
****Project: SUNCATCHERS

*******Drink Specials for your face! Yummy Yummy!  
*********$3 suggested donation, thank you for supporting the arts!  

The wispy high-up twirling clouds and gorgeous blue sky are just bringin’ it so much that we gotta make sun catchers! I have all this stuff to do, but I just want to feel that brisk wind in my face, watch my scarf whirl in the wintry wind as I hurry to and fro with errands aplenty! But I guess I could take a break, yeah, I guess I could do that and make a sun catcher at CraftNight in the rumpus room at Akbar.

I suppose I could have a delicious beverage and saunter over to where paint and supplies are waiting for me, and I could wax creative. I could be that  cold season character, I could build camaraderie with strangers and let out a lusty guffaw over my mini-plastic-flagon of spirits. I could reach out to a hearty band of souls on a chilly night, offering my fellowship and goodwill.

It’s National Compliment Day, and it’s National Peanut Butter Day, so already those are some pretty good topics of conversation. It wouldn’t require much effort to start talking about such things. It’s also Beer Can Day and Belly Laugh Day, one cannot lose with those good days of observation taking up squares on the calendar. Do not be hindered by the hurdles of the day, they are gone, and all that awaits you is a bevy of high-quality experiences manufactured onsite under our roof at the corner of Sunset and Fountain.

See you at the Craft Table,

JP Craft Captain

Chinese New Year Craft! • Feb 17th, 2016

 

monkey_paints

TONIGHT! Wednesday Feb 17th, 2016 from 9pm until midnight (or later) at Akbar, it’s CRAFTNIGHT!!!
Project: NEON MONKEY DOOR HANGAR in honor of CHINESE NEW YEAR!!! 
$3 Processing fee, please
$4 Drink Specials at Akbar: At the Corner of Sassy and Crassy 

Apparently, the year of the monkey throws everything into flux, and anything can happen. It’s a lightening fast-paced year with fiery motivation and fantastical feats of individual expression!

So I thought we’d make neon monkey door hangers.

You can think about the doors you want to open this year and walk right through them!

I know it’s rainy, but that never stopped a monkey. Come on in!

See you at the Craft Table!

Rainbow Button Fish Tableau • May 6th, 2015

Rainbow Button Fish Tableau • May 6th, 2015

swirly

This Wednesday, May 6th, 2015 from 9pm until midnight (or later) at Akbar, it’s CRAFTNIGHT!!!
Project: Rainbow Button Fish Wall Hanging Kit   
$3 Processing fee, please
$4 Drink Specials, it’s a dry heat, quench that parched throat for heaven’s sake!   
EXCITING MEGA RAFFLE!!! (info below craft info)

This week we’ve got a craft kit trophy even your staunch republican family will appreciate! It looks like you hunted this fish all by yourself and mounted it on your wall! It’s made from craft foam and colorful buttons, easy to put together, but looks really complicated like it took you three days!

Fool people into thinking you’re one of those people who is out on the water by 5am tackle box in hand. Point at your button fish wall hanging and tell a fishing tail of how it really gave you a rough time, it was like Hemingway’s “The Old Man and the Sea” struggling beyond all belief until you reeled it in! Nobody will be the wiser, since we live in a city and people think that cows are goats!

And on that note, I’ll say that I’m actually typing this email yards away from Lake Tahoe, on my honeymoon!!! I’m very far away!!! A big thank you to all crafters who helped with wedding decorations for the last 3 CraftNights!!!

At the helm this week running the Craft Table will be CraftNight Lieutenant, Veronica LeBron! She will give you your supplies and also entice you to be a part of our mega raffle. Here’s the info:
