Vicarious Crafting at Adult Education

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

For the most part, I think all people have the ability to be crafty. I mean, we all survive elementary school and figured out how to glue pasta onto things. But there is the rare individual who will wind up gluing their fingers together with a glue gun, licking the paint off a potato for potato printing on accident or breaking several extaco knife blades any time they try to do an art project. If you’re in the former group and looking for ideas for new projects, or if you’re in the later group and want to do some vicarious crafting, you should go to the Adult Education Lecture at Union Hall tomorrow night. Several panelists will be talking about the topic “Homespun and Handmade.” Subtopics include: the knish, differences between blue and red state crafting, and a round up of craft books talking about using castoff materials. It’s like that art class you never took in college, only the materials fee won’t keep you away.

Kiley E - Ragamuffin Researcher

After years of denial, Kiley has finally admitted to baring a striking resemblance to Velma from Scooby Doo. Instead of traveling in a van hunting ghosts, she prefers wandering on foot in search of tacos, cheap beer, and fake birds. Growing up in Portland, Kiley enjoyed the balance of urban and green spaces. Then she spent her four years at Ithaca College, and found herself craving more sprawling asphalt in her life. So she moved to Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where most of the buildings look like they're about to collapse. Kiley's favorite activities include: getting lost, crafting, sewing, biking, and geeking out at museums. Her love of taxidermy probably makes her a terrible vegetarian, but she doesn't care.
