Radical Craft Night is back at the MAH! Challenge your traditional notions of craft at the MAH’s Radical Craft Night, which pushes crafting to the extreme. Join us for a night of workshops, demonstrations, collaborations, performances, music and making at the MAH.
The Fábrica will teach you how to make origami lanterns, yo-yos and sock monsters. Create your own 3d wood canvases with local woodworker, Jim Sloane. The Pajaro Valley Quilt Association will teach you how to make your own fabric-sewn cards. Michael Wood will demonstrate blacksmithing on the front street entrance.
Special guest band Corpus Callosum will perform and invite you to participate in a variety of workshops crafting with plants, music and performance art.
Becca Hiatt will demonstrate weaving and teach visitors how to weave on a triangular loom. Sara Homan will bring back historical crafting techniques by showing visitors how to use hand cranked and treadle machines to make bags out of scrap fabric. Get your face painted in radical designs. Create a large collaborative rag rug made entirely from old tshirts.
Bring your monkey energy and join the members of Gamelan Anak Swarasanti in a participatory performance of Kecak Monkey Chant, lead by Kristopher Yunker, I Gede Oka Artha Negara, and Wes Modes. Kecak is a form of vocal percussion and dance originating in Bali, Indonesia, and inspired by traditional gamelan, performed by a circle of dozens and even hundreds of performers chanting in interlocking patterns and performing choreographed motions. Come prepared to play and sing.
