What’s this about “Green Sunday”? It’s an alternative to Black Friday, a chance to give and receive homemade and recycled gifts in time for the holidays. Avoid the crush of the mall; enjoy the gifts we make. If you’ve given everyone a hand-knit scarf every year for the last ten years – and those never wear out — all your friends have ten hand-knit scarves. Bring your handiwork and trade your scarves for socks, or bags or cakes … and give everyone something different this year.
It’s also the closing party for the show “Water: Creation or Destruction?” Artwalk Inc. and Creative Resource, promoting Water Awareness through art. Some of the artists whose work is exhibited will be there, and we’ll have an information table.
Someone approached me the other day and asked, “But what can I bring? I work in my home office…” I thought of the drummer boy: Can you play for us? You’ve got something to offer , I’m sure, and this being Thanksgiving weekend we’ll be thankful.
Sunday December 1st, 1-5, at Spirit Studio 3711 Evans Street, (Los Angeles, 90027) from 1-5PM
Lee will be showing us how to make these great origami boxes, and I’m thinking about trading for stuff, time-dollars, or just giving away:
- · Latkes – It’s the fifth night of Chanukah and you might never have tasted my latkes. I make a mean latke.
- · Puppets – These antique puppets need to be restrung, and I might never get around to it. They’ve been in a trunk for ten years. If you can re-string one, you can have it… Also we can make puppets from scratch.
- · Signed copies of novels – I’ve got several copies on each of my published novels and I need the closet space for shoes.
Spirit Studio is right on the edge between Silver Lake and Los Feliz Time Banks (3711 Evans Street, LA 90027, at the corner of Evans and Hyperion) where the Silver Lake Time Bank held it’s kick-off party so some of you already know the place. We’ll have tables set up for activities, displays where people can teach skills in making a great holiday with recycled materials, and/or artful gifts, including food items.
