Birch Disk Magnets! • February 28th, 2018

TONIGHT! Wednesday, February 28th, 2018 from 9pm to midnight (or later) it’s CRAFTNIGHT! 
****Project: Birch Disk Magnets! 

*******$4 PABST/TECATES • $5 Cocktail Special, a vacation in a glass!   
*********$3 suggested donation, thank you for supporting the arts!  

Birch disks! They’re little rounds cut from tree branches, they’re so natural and made of wood! I have paint, and you can spend some time making one into a magnet! I’m also bringing Mod Podge, so that you can preserve it for posterity. It’s the LAST day of February, with chilly air outside, but warm and comfy fun inside, with people, drinks, music, and of course, Crafts!

And just a lil’ reminder: You can bring your very OWN project that you’re working on to CraftNight! Doing some knitting? Working on your zine? Painting a frame for your bathroom or creating something sweet for someone neat-o? Do it here! Bring your stuff, set up shop and have company while you work! We’re your own little corner of free-spirited enjoyment, a cocktail klatch of conversation, getting to know others, and making stuff while the ambiance percolates around you. It’s designed for both the bold and the shy, and it’s designed with supplies in mind if you don’t have any of your own for which to make a craft. Use our supplies or use ours, either way, we’re excited to see you.

See you at the Craft Table,

JP Craft Captain

Coral was just in the mountains, she has just returned home.
To ease her back into the LA city lifestyle, we’re doing a birch disk craft that you can paint and wear around your neck.
It looks super rustic, you can either paint stuff on it, or just glue things to it, a super easy craft, you should do it, yeah.
Let the forest be your guide, dance with the mammal inside your mind.
Get in touch with the leaves and the sap and the branches, it’s almost summer!

Fox-Turkey-Owl-Squirrel • November 11th, 2015


TONIGHT! Wednesday, Nov. 11th, 2015 from 9pm until midnight (or later) at Akbar, it’s CRAFTNIGHT!!!

Project: Fox-Turkey-Owl-Squirrel! 

$3 Processing fee, please

$4 Drink Specials at Akbar: Everything you want in a drink, and more

Step into CraftNight and take your pick of two very specialized project bags that we’ve put together just for you! You can pick the bag with the Fox and the Owl, or you can pick the bag that has the Turkey and the Squirrel.

If you’re feeling Sly and Wise, the Fox/Owl bag might be your thing.

If you’re feeling Spry and Delicious, the Squirrel/Turkey bag might be your jam.

Take the pieces and parts and bits, assemble them together however you like, and then place on colored paper to build a sort of tableau, a vignette, a scene from the fabulous fall season. Give it to someone who could use some autumn energy, or to someone who just loves nature’s creatures. See you tonight!
