Sustainability Sunday: A Very Motuv Christmas
Sunday, December 11, 2011
Well it’s that time of year, though I’m not much for the the holiday itself but I do find value in the underlying message if you tear away the consumerism and the advertising. To exchange markers of value some made, some found with those you care about. What better pursuit, so the gang here at Motuv wants to invite you to the first leg of the last tour in Kansas city beginning with our good friends at the Kansas city center for ink and paper arts. Nestled in the basement of the Hobbes building is a treasure trove of wonders, from expert calligraphy to beautiful letterpress machines, hell they’ve even got a screen printing collective.
The night will bring presentations from the amazing and evocative Sarah Sutherland on making cookies based on the different types of rendered fats, a basic rundown of roller-derby by a couple great roller girls themselves cuz really what’s winter without some good natured beat-down? And a quick tutorial on letterpress complete with a handmade card for everyone who shows up. Bring in the season based on right action and the equivalent exchange of value, and have some damn fun while you’re at it.
This is also a pot-luck event so please bring some food and enjoy some good company, and as always this is a nonalcoholic event. Anyone unclear on how to get there just message me. Hope to see you there! D
1427 W 9th St [Basement of the Hobbes Building] 6:30pm until 10:00pm
