White Nights Craft Workshop: July 12th @ Hamiltonian

The Hamiltonian Gallery on U street will provide space for a craft making workshop to be held on July 12th between 6:30pm and 8pm. Join us and help us craft the gifts we intend to distribute along the White Nights Full Moon Outing. We will provide instruction and all the required supplies.  We will be constructing items like tissue paper flowers and origami figures in large numbers to hand out to the riders who join us on the full moon night. (Note: The wearing of a Kimono is not required during workshop activities.)

The White Nights event will be slightly different than other D&Q bicycle rides. While the mission of pure joy and amusement remains, the look will be decidedly more dreamlike.  Let your imagination lead your sartorial choices.  Think of light colors, breezy fabrics and whatever playful childlike accessories that fit the theme and are usually deemed most inappropriate for adulthood.  We will consider silliness a virtue and creativity a welcome blessing.  If you’ve been to the Burning Man festival in Nevada, reference those experiences and help us redefine D.C. nights.  If you long for the chance to play, pretend and explore the moonlit side of our city, this ride is for you!  If you are an artist with some wild ideas to contribute to our theme, contact us!

Complete our on-line form to help us with some basic information about who will be attending the ride and the workshop.  It will also provide us with an opportunity to contact you and learn of your creative ideas and abilities.  If we can incorporate them into the ride and planned picnic activities, we would like to know.

We are looking forward to a fresh experience designed to kindle new friendships and allow for unrestricted kindness. We do hope you can join us!

Picture below is one example of the kinds of items we will be creating.
