What to do with left over Walnut Shells from Thanksgiving

The New Harmonica Rascals 12 noon- 1pm

Harmonica Rascals
LA-based Harmonica Rascals play old-time Americana music. The string band was formed by artist David Bunn (guitar & vocals) in collaboration with champion fiddler Heather Bennett.  The project takes its name and inspiration from visual artist, Thomas Hart Benton’s old-time music band of the same name, formed in the 1930s in New York City. Made up of Benton, other artists and his students, including Jackson Pollack, his was the first urban revival Americana music band.  As the Italian Collective, Lucie Fontaine, has written “David Bunn’s Harmonica Rascals is the cover band to the first cover band of old-time music.”  Bunn’s visual and performance based artworks have been shown internationally, and locally in exhibitions at MOCA, LACMA, SMMOA and OCMA.  The Harmonica Rascals is his newest project.  As old-time music is social music, The Rascals are often joined by special guests.

Last Thursday's work

Crafting is in full speed each Thursday at the McComb Campus and each Friday morning at the 15th St campus. This week at the McComb campus, crafters felted tiny babies and placed them into silk worm cocoons. The cocoons will be died with beautiful natural dies and then made into necklaces.

More Crafting Thursdays

Hand carved wooden animals were filed and sanded by patient moms. Then rubbed with a combination of bees wax, mineral oil and essencial oils. The task was made easier with the smell of lavender and patchouli in the air.
