medium_IMG_5238Want to learn how to make your own adorable plush toys?

Join us for Mikey Anderson’s Slothie Yarnie Sewing Workshop! Bring a friend or fly solo and meet fun people. Come in empty handed and leave with your very own handmade plush sloth! No sewing experience necessary. Kids and adults welcome!

Your entry fee includes all materials needed to make your very own plush Slothie plus instruction by Yarnies creator Mikey Anderson.

Mikey creates quirky little characters for the enjoyment of being immersed in his own imaginative world. These characters range from adorable foxes to little hipster dudes who come in the form of plush toys, zines, and key-chains he calls “Yarnies.” They are silly, colorful, and googly-eyed creature that wear plaid shirts and bow ties that are reminiscent of the retro cartoons his generation grew up with.

Grab your ticket today!

We’ll be on hand with Adam K. Kurtz as he reads from my new book THINGS ARE WHAT YOU MAKE OF THEM in the lobby of the Ace Hotel in downtown Portland. 
DRY Sparkling is sending us free drinks and Land staff will be on hand to sell books to be signed.

Adam describes the event as “It’ll be really cute and low key so come by and hang out and let’s talk about the fun anxiety that comes with ‘being a creative’ and ‘trying to make things.'”

Come on out, meet Adam and hear about his great new book. Can’t make it? You can pickup your copy online at our sister shop buyolympia.com

Artist Nikki McClure returns to Land to share the original pieces from her 2018 calendar. Using only an x-acto knife, Nikki transforms a single piece of black construction paper into something magical. Pulling inspiration from the world around her, she creates a strong, female-driven narrative of life in the Pacific Northwest.

Join us for an opening reception on Friday, October 20th from 6-9pm.

Show runs through November 19th. Open daily 10a – 7p.
