No doubt, this isn’t your typical Saturday night plan. The idea is that each person chooses their project (of Woodcut, 3D Design, carpentry, image transfers, stencils, etc.) from a menu and creates while drinking something with new friends and old. They give you the materials, the tools and the instructions, you put your hands to work. At the end of the night you go with your creation. You can do the project solo, or buy one to make amongst friends.
19 – 23 hrs. | La Salamandra | Address by reservation | Villa Crespo
