at the Berkeley Art Museum // MP Confuse-a-tron

    February 25, 2011 // 6pm to 9pm

    You are invited to join us for Machine Project’s first Workshop Confuse-a-tron. At Machine Project we do all different kinds of workshops, and we thought it would be fun to do a few of them in one space on the same night. Its like a workshop buffet, where you could do one to four workshops over teh course of the evening. The event will feature simultaneous drop-in sessions on making kimchi, converting melons into amplified drums, plant cloning, and the application (and styling) of tranimal drag makeup.

  • Tranimal


    Squeaky Blonde, Jer Ber Jones, and Austin Young trans-form participants into TRANIMALS. Visitors enter a Tranimal-assembly-line where they undergo a transformation with after-portraits by Austin Young. After the workshop, please join us at SOMETHING at THE STUD for a Tranimal after party hosted by Vivvyanne Forevermore, and Glamamore. Should be an excellent time to show off your tranimal make-up.

    Check out this article on the event, when we had Tranimal to Machine.

  • Plant Cloning


    Come with a few cuttings of your favorite plants to share and trade with others. If you’re new to the world of cutting and growing, come ready to start your own little plantlets with a variety of cloning methods that will be demonstrated throughout the afternoon. No experience or green-thumb required. With Denise King from the Exploratorium.

  • Kimchee


    Connie and Oghee “Granny” Choe will be lead participants through making their own batch of kimchi. They will introduce workshop-goers to the artful practice of fermentation and participants will leave with a giant jar of delicious kimchi.
