Level 1, Fresh City Lounge

We resisted the urge to call this class the Dapper Dan workshop after the 1970s plush doll that kids used to learn how to dress themselves. You’ll be knitting a clutch purse that will help you explore techniques that will multiply your fibers skills immensely. In this sweet little bag pattern (created for us by our teacher Ann Myhre), you’ll discover opportunities to put in a pocket, add buttonholes, create slip stitch colorwork, install a zipper by hand and add a flourish with crochet edgings.

Weekend Music Series -Uilleann Pipes with Eric Olson

Music and Dance
2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Schlessman Hall, Level 1

A haunting instrument with an Irish pedigree, Uilleann pipes have never sounded better than when played by expert Eric Olson. He presents this fascinating concert on the bagpipes that are akin to the Scottish pipes that we all know so well. Uilleann pipes have a greater tonal and octave range, are subtle and poetic enough to play indoors, and are usually played sitting down. Because of the bellows attached to these pipes, the musician can speak and sing while the instrument is played. Don’t miss this rare chance to hear the wistful music of the Uilleann pipes floating through our great hall.

Hey, we know how to throw a craftacular shindig and this year’s Etsy craft party will be no exception. Like a bunch of meatballs, we’re going to roll into summer with a craft camp party. There’ll be crafting stations, a couple great summer camp movies, a hot dog commissary, bug juice bar and camp-y dessert.

Sign up to make a ceramic incense burner, old school lanyards, cycle-chic friendship bracelets and even send a personalized postcard to someone “back home.” Crafters are also welcome to bring their favorite portable handwork; a busy camper is a happy camper!

Untitled#57: Darn

Arts and Crafts
6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Denver Art Museum, 13th Avenue at Acoma Plaza

Express yourself without exerting yourself. Fresh City Life takes the word ‘darn’ for its other meaning – a G-rated verbalization of repressed emotion. Come play with us and experiment with a Lichtenstein-esque exercise in the banality of words where ‘WOW!’ becomes ‘meh,’ ‘POW!’ becomes ‘ow,’ ‘Argh!’ turns into ‘oh’ and ‘Cowabunga!’ translates to ‘ok.’ You’ll create a cool fridge magnet that lets everyone know that you’re teetering on the brink of absolute ennui. General admission for Untitled events is $10 and the Fresh City Life station is free with admission.

Never regret thy fall,
O Icarus of the fearless flight
For the greatest tragedy of them all
Is never to feel the burning light.
~Oscar Wilde

Fresh City Life honors the brave and perilous flights that creatives must take in order to reach for their dreams. And we embrace the lesson of Icarus: he may have fallen, but first he flew. Join local director Brenda Cook Ritenour and favorite Denver actors GerRee Hinshaw, Rhonda Brown, Josh Hartwell and Lorenzo Sarinana as they present a staged reading of this award-winning retelling of the Icarus fable.
