DECEMBER 27 YEAR-END PARTY
Members, potential members and friends are invited to the annual NCWCA Year-End Party! Let's celebrate together by sharing good food & drinks, burning bad juju, art-making and exchanging White Elephant gifts.
When: Thursday, December 27 from 6 - 9 pm
Where: Judy Johnson-Williams' studio at 347 Lewis Street, Oakland
We do these things every year-end:
1. Bring a potluck food or drink item to share
2. Burn juju to cleanse the past: write down bad or sad things that happened during the year, twist up the paper, and burn it in Judy's hibachi
3. Bring something from your studio (tool, materials, objects) that you aren't using. Make sure to wrap it in beautiful paper, and participate in the annual White Elephant exchange. Some of the items have been precious, others hilarious, one woman's junk is another's treasure.
4. Art-Making is a core value for NCWCA and Elizabeth Addison will be sure to surprise us with a spontaneous art-making activity.
Let's Carpool! Click this link to offer rides or ask for rides. Those seeking rides may have to fill out a wait list form if there are no drivers yet offering rides.
