Protest Poster Party for Women’s March 2019 • Jan 16th, 2019

CRAFTNIGHT! AKBAR! • Wed. Jan 16th, 2019 • Protest Posters!

This week, CraftNight opens its doors for Teachers who need to refresh their strike signs, as well as people prepping for the LA Women’s March happening in DTLA this upcoming weekend (JAN 19th).

We’ll have ALL the sign supplies for you to use, from markers to paints, cardboard etc. so that you can show your displeasure with the DUMBNESS of the LA Unified School District, the wall-obsessed non-negotiator cheeto in chief, and many other items in the catalogue of terrible currently crumbling the city and the nation.

There are so MANY reasons to march, so many reasons to make a sign, like:

  • We Stand With Our LA Teachers
  • End the F*CKING ShutDown Already
  • FBI in Yer Eye Collusion-Crazy CheetoHead
  • The BLUE WAVE is coming! Gonna drown you 2020 (vote!!!)
  • Walls are NOT the Answer
  • Republicans Raised the Federal deficit to ONE TRILLION
  • Trump Family = Russian Nesting Dolls

See you at the Craft Table, JP Craft Captain

First Craft of the Year!!! • January 10th, 2018

JANUARY 10th, 2018 DOORS OPEN EARLY 7pm!!!! 
****8pm Special Workshop by Linda Santiman and Lauren Costine  

*****9pm Sign-making and cocktail-drinking continues!!! 
******$3 donation for supplies, purty pleeze!  
>>>>RSVP HERE! (Help us figure out how many supplies to bring!)<<<<<<

New Year and bet your bippy that we’re comin’ in HOT!!! It’s a Protest Poster Painting Party for the upcoming Los Angeles Womens March! Come on in without a THING and we’ll give you all the supplies to make yourself seen and heard when you go downtown to holler!

Our sign painting salons get kinda crowded, so we’re opening at 7pm (take advantage of Akbar’s lovely happy hour prices) for earlybird access to make your sign. We know last year was a total shit show, and we know it’s just gonna keep coming at us, this is why Linda and Lauren will be teaching a one-hour workshop at 8pm called “Resistance – How to be an Activist Without Losing Your Mind.”

I don’t know about you, but I’m really into THE TRUTH. And truth is at a premium. Whatever your feelings about the GOP and the President, information is being distorted, and it’s hard to keep a level head. The role of a free press in our democracy is vital, it’s our watchdog on behalf of the public’s interest, let us not be asleep at the wheel about this. There is a lot of messed up stuff about this weird country, but our First Amendment Right is one of the best things we ever did for ourselves.

WHY do we protest? Does it make a difference? YES IT DOES. Progress is slow, politics is frustrating, tedious, and a major pain in the ass, it takes forever. We are pushing the papers, we’re making the calls, and we’re doing the work. But we’re also THE PEOPLE, and we are the ones who will also be voting, and our discontent must be VISIBLE. Those who are elected serve us, our elected officials need a goddamn reminder that we are awake and watching.

We also need to get out there for ourselves, for each other, in solidarity. We do have power, and a great way to remember that is by seeing just how many of us are willing to spend our hard-earned leisure time continuing to protest the dumbness that is the current GOP.

So this week I’m offering you the most FUN way to work on your discontent. Get your butt in here and make a sign, we need you.

There will be treats, there will be paint, there will be cocktails, handouts, education, camaraderie, cohesion, and resolve!

See you at the Craft Table,

JP Craft Captain
