Join Us for a Thoughtful Thursday
November 30 @ 4:30 pm – 7:00 pm EST
Within hours of circling the Thanksgiving dinner table and reflecting on “what we are thankful for,” Americans are bombarded by department store circulars and flashing web banners stoking seemingly endless consumer desires. Even as we fall prey to these enticements, we recognize at some level that our appetite for the newest tech and the snazziest fashions is destroying the planet—and cheapening our sense of what really matters.
Join the EDC and recover from the erratic Thanksgiving Holidays this “Thoughtful Thursday” (our rejoinder to the consumerist excesses of Black Friday/ Cyber Monday) by crafting some hand-made holiday cards for family and friends during this month’s in-person Tide Pool Social. Meet us in Red Emma’s in the Café on Thursday, November 30th from 4:30pm to 7:00pm. Snip, paste, draw, paint, and craft holiday greetings and warm sentiments with us over hot drinks from Red Emma’s cooperatively-owned café space. (We won’t judge a consumerist impulse to pick up some books in the bookstore—it is a co-op, after all!)
We will provide blank cards and envelopes, collage materials, oil pastels, gluesticks, watercolors, and colored pencils; you are welcome to bring magazines/ collage materials/ other art supplies, for yourself or to share! Kindly RSVP so we have an idea of how many materials to bring. Feel free to bring a friend and share the invite widely!
December 16 @ 11:00 am – 12:30 pm EST
