Virtual Crafts & Cocktails

Vibeke Klint Craft
Oct 22
Special Event
Virtual Crafts & Cocktails
Oct 22, 2020
6:00pm - 7:00pm PST

Recharge from your day with an evening of creativity and fun! Join us for our virtual Crafts & Cocktails event to get a mini-virtual tour from one our docents, learn a cocktail recipe, and make a craft using supplies you have around the house. 

This October craft is a cozy one loosely inspired by the pattern-work of  Danish textile artists such as Vibeke Klint. 

We will take a favorite (or found) landscape image and use a simple process to recreate the image into a minimalist grid. The soothing work of filling small squares with color is a balm for the frayed nerves of this season. This is an easy craft that, after a little setup, yields sublime, unique results.

The materials are:

  • Paper sturdy enough for watercolors
  • Watercolor paints and brush (* anything with a wide color range will work if watercolors aren't available, such as colored pencils or pastels)
  • Landscape photo image (can be a printout from your life or torn from a magazine, but nothing precious as we will make marks on it.  Also if the chosen image is smaller than your paper size it makes setup easier). 
  • pencil and eraser
  • ruler
  • masking tape

Here is what you'll need for this month's cocktail

  • Whiskey (any kind)
  • Apple cider
  • Lemon juice
  • Sweet vermouth
  • Orange bitters
  • Potentially a splash of aquavit

 

Cost: $5
