Autumn Leaf Craft • Sept. 29th, 2015


This Wednesday, Oct. 7th, 2015 from 9pm until midnight (or later) at Akbar, it’s CRAFTNIGHT!!!
Project: Halloween Figurine
$3 Processing fee, please
$4 Drink Specials: Engineered to move the human spirit. 

Presenting: Beautiful Plaster figurines in three different Halloween themes for you to paint! Get yourself a beverage, sit right down and do some painting while getting to know your fellow Angelenos. Achieve the balance of being and doing in ONE NIGHT!

Your Halloween figurine will bond with your MIND and make you think about peanut brittle, pumpkins, hay rides, fall leaves, cinnamon, pie, tea flavors, creepy masks, Halloween candy, and skeletons. Such a thing might freak you out at first, but remember, it’s not “haunting” you, it’s just “reminding” you. Like an app.

It’s great to be in October, it’s great to feel the rain, it’s great to see big crazy clouds in the sky and people having hot drinks again. Rumor has it that Friday’s going to be HOT, so let’s all meet at CraftNight and hold a “weather seance” to keep temperatures down! Can’t guarantee that anyone will be listening to us, but you should probably be a little buzzed and engrossed in painting your Halloween figurine anyway.

Painty-Painty Figurine Time! • September 4th, 2013


This Wednesday, September 4th, 2013 from 9pm – midnight or later, at Akbar, it’s CRAFTNIGHT!
Project: Paint a Figurine! 
$2 Processing fee
$4 Cosmopolitans! The Akbar Cosmo: Enriching the Lives of People We Touch. 

Coming across many tiny plaster figurines of dogs, bugs, unicorns, frog princes and what-not, far be it from your Craft Captain to not capitalize on the situation: I got ’em ALL. If you like coloring, then you’ll probably like painting one of these things, it’s like a 3-D coloring book, except not! It’s painting a tiny statue, which is easy if you paint it all one color, and hard if you paint it over 10 colors! And you can sparkle it up with some glitter glue and add whatever you need to take things further.

September means back to school, back to books, back to teachers and dirty looks, and on the horizon is the Autumnal Equinox. Autumn approaches with each shorter summer evening sunset, pink slashes through the sky, a thousand billowy cumulonimbus organza ball gowns coloring the golden atmosphere. At some point, the earth will tilt just that much, that teeny bit that will make leaves fall and the sky a bit more blue. But until that happens, the tomatoes and the berries are perfect, baseball season is getting very exciting, and with this heat, any body of water is still quite inviting.

Please drop in to CraftNight and see us if you’re so inclined.

See you at the Craft Table,

JP Craft Captain
