Mod Podge Coaster Craft • July 8th, 2015

resort_bus

TONIGHT! Wednesday, July8th, 2015 from 9pm until midnight (or later) at Akbar, it’s CRAFTNIGHT!!!
Project: Mod Podge Coaster Craft 
$3 Processing fee, please
$4 Drink Specials: Now with Fresh Drink Scent! 

CRAFTNIGHT CAMPFIRE RESORT MARCHES ON! 

As ever, CraftNight continues to be a source of inspiration for high society ideals, especially since we turned into a resort for the summer season. Tonight we embrace coasters! The very first coasters, or beermats, or whatever you wanna call ’em, were made in the 1880s, and the function of coasters has not changed. Basically, they protect surfaces, like your table, from moisture. Tonight’s coasters are made from cork, which means they are pretty high-end, and are sure to impress guests when you put these on display.

Take your handy-dandy coaster, and adorn it with felt, OR use magazine scraps (we will have plenty) to Mod Podge them and make them be awesome. Mod Podge is sort of like glue, and sort of like not, it’s sticky, but when it dries, it forms a protective cover over the scraps you’ve decided to immortalize.

We have Jan Whetstone to thank for Mod Podge, a substance that we officially decided is one of the most feminist craft supplies you can use. Jan mixed up the recipe for Mod Podge in her garage in the 60s, she was an advocate for women’s rights in the business world, and developed the most widely used, versatile substance for decoupage in history. She passed away in 2013 leaving behind a legacy of wonderful craft recipes and products, and we will salute her tonight by making coasters!

Also, are we still handing out badges to commemorate your resort and can you earn them all? YES! Collect them while supplies last! Lastly, we will have very special guest and camp counselor, Alex Kenefick, presenting some camp exercises, if you complete them, you’ll get the best badge yet! Read more below if you want to know more.

See you at the Craft Table,

Beer Bottle Yarn Craft and Movie Night • July 1st, 2015

trailer_hack

This Wednesday, July 1st, 2015 from 9pm until midnight (or later) at Akbar, it’s CRAFTNIGHT!!!
Project: Beer Bottle Yarn Craft 
$3 Processing fee, please
$4 Drink Specials: The best part of waking up is Akbar in your cup! 

 

CRAFTNIGHT CAMPFIRE RESORT CONTINUES!  
Yes, your favorite hideaway haven at your favorite dark and dreamy neighborhood bar has gone and turned itself into a resort. What does that mean? It means that we’ll be faithfully carrying on with the weekly craft, but we’re also going to throw in some extra summery and leisurely and camp-like elements into our usual programming.

This week’s craft is a classic, where you take a beer bottle, wrap it with yarn, decorate it with all manner of geegaws, put a candle in it and voila, instant resort ambiance!

We also have badges for summertime, collect them all! You see, it’s like campfire girls, or webelos, or girl scouts, or the Navy, or the Vatican or other organizations that are supposed to shape you into a model citizen using cult-like materials symbolizing achievement, rank or status. We’re not trying to turn anyone into a model citizen, if anything, kind of the opposite. But who doesn’t enjoy a good premium? This week’s badge will be just as coveted as the last, so be sure to get one!

We’re going to watch”Wet Hot American Summer” while you wrap beer bottles with yarn.
We will press “play” on the DVD close to 10pm, and we’ll play it as many times as we want until the bar closes, probably about twice. And we’ll have popcorn. And if you want to play “archery” to get badge #1 from last week, it will be available to you!

See you at the Craft Table,

JP Craft Captain
