3rd Friday at the Museum of Art and History: Radical Craft Night
November 18 2011
$5 General Admission $3 Students
Challenge your traditional notions of craft at The Museum of Art & History's Radical Craft Night. Join us for a night of workshops, demonstrations, collaborations, performances, music and making at the MAH.
Local crafters will be leading all the activities from wood cut 3D canvases to large-scale collaborative collage storybooks to crafting electronics. Participate in a collaborative embroidery roulette with The Fábrica or give knitting and crocheting an urban edge with yarn bombers as they take over the MAH’s stairwell. Mix redecorating and recycling at the plastic bag remake station, in cork art landscapes or in Junk Art Scramble’s massive collaborative scrap metal fish installation. Learn new sewing skills and techniques in The Pajaro Valley Quilt Association’s mini quilting and rug making workshop. Join in and experiment or socialize and relax as you watch demonstrations in continuous strand weaving and a variety of performances.
Special guest band Corpus Callosum invites you to participate in a parade, performances and mask, moth and music making workshops.
Music: 5:30-6:15pm and 8-8:45pm
