lost in translation...
It's with great pleasure that we the East London Craft Guerrilla are hosting a D.I.Y. craft event in a local pub in Walthamstow Village as part of the E17 Art Trail. The venue is The Castle off Eden Road. The date has been penciled in as the 10th of September(TBC).
Contrary to what has been published in both the E17 Art Trail map blurb and their newsletter this event is not a SINGLES event. How that got through is anyone's guess! Actually to be fair there was talk initially of joining with another event and offering a speed dating service for artists to be matched with art lovers but that never went ahead.We had thought that it would be nice to have a mega event and join forces.Well not this time but who knows...love might flourish anyway!
True that the name of the event might have confused things even further. What we mean is in a "tongue and cheek" way and a play on words as it is in the East End..."Art for the Artless" thus offering people of all,some and no artistic ability the chance to be creative and... Artistic! Also "Heart for the heartless" in the sense that even the people that have given up or lost heart to the idea that they are unable to create or ever producing a work of art/craft can and will.It's about restoring hope and making art!
All the projects or Craft Packs available on the night are "heart" related and available to purchase for a small fee on the night. More on these soon. Tutors will be on hand should you need assistance and help with your project.
Event description is on the Art Trail website without any mention of it being a"singles" event. Please feel free to come along no matter if you are single,married,cohabiting,living in sin etc...
THIS IS ABOUT CREATIVITY, FUN, CRAFT AND BRINGING IT TO THE PEOPLE...ALL PEOPLE!
The only stipulation because it is in a pub and in the evening is that it is an ADULTS ONLY event.
Dates and details for the event "Hearts for the heartless" to be made public soon. Check the web site and blog page in the next couple of weeks.
DJ's confirmed: Jake Holloway (Village Vinyl) Vao aka Miss Lisa Margreet and the Handsome twins.
Don't forget to dig out those "Guilty Pleasures", the records you"love to hate" but secretly absolutely love though would never admit to. Bring them along and we'll play them...lets just say that we've all a few skeletons in our musical closets!
