On the second Saturday of every month, the Trumbullplex hosts Small Craft. It’s a pop-up shop, offering upcycled craft supplies at pay-as-you wish prices. It’s a social event, where old and new friends meet, sip coffee, and work on creative projects. And it’s a series of skillshares, taught by some of our area’s many talented crafters.
This month, you’re invited to join Dennis and Christina Jacobs from Perfect Laughter for a talk and demonstration about screen printing. Bring a record cover to repurpose into an art print that you can take home.
Material fee is $5, and you can sign-up here. Bring along a record cover or two of your choice (preferably light in color, and one you don’t mind printing on!).
Coffee, tea, and vegan treats provided, as always.
Perfect Laughter is Dennis and Christina Jacobs, a Detroit based design, screen print, and letterpress studio. They have been screen printing for the last five years, making art prints, gig posters, and other paper goods.
June Pop-Up Shop and Skillshare
Pop-Up Shop from 2:00-6:00
Skillshare begins at 3:00
CJ BOYD- Equal parts ambient and virtuosic, CJ Boyd’s bass playing builds upon a foundation of great bassists like Charles Mingus and Edgar Meyer. C.J. Boyd’s aesthetic sensibility seeks to wed minimalism with a chamber-esque maximalism. Often flowing from singular, meditative bass lines into explosive, layered, and hugely complex walls of sound, CJ masterfully orchestrates waves of bass loops coupled with Jazz-driven improvisational prowess. Utilizing only various bass instruments and some human-mouth-sounds, creating these lush arrangements is no small feat. And I tell you what, I has sex after his last show here while listening to his record and it was amazing. Definitely love makin music.
JOEY MOLINARO- NYC-based composer, violinist, and fiddler Joey Molinaro first gained attention as a member of the seven-piece experimental chamber-grind outfit “Basilica.” As an acoustic or electric solo artist, he conjures a torrent of riffs over a two-boot foot percussion flurry.
THE WIRE EYES- Detroit really good ambient shoe gaze, or something. But not boring.
