Being a kid is confusing. On one hand parents tell you, "don’t play with your food," when they catch you sculpting a gravy volcano out of mashed potato; on the other hand your art teacher gives you a potato stamp and instructs you to get busy. Tribe restaurant sides with the art teachers on this one, and are keen to add a whole farmers market of vegetables to the mix. Tribe is launching Artsy Foodsy, an arts and crafts series showing kids how to make art using food.
First up this Wednesday, October 21 are kid-made vegetable prints on adult-sized aprons. Kids will learn to use corn, okra, lotus root, celery, and more to gussy up adult-sized aprons, which they can in turn give to their nearest and dearest chefs. So you’ll get to wear their food handiwork as you make them your food handiwork.
Suitable for kids ages 3-10, Artsy Foodsy events will be lead by Jane Zhang, owner of Very Jane Kids Craft Studio. Places are limited so sign up fast here. You can also sign up in-store, or via WeChat ID: ORGANIC_ORGANIC. The RMB 80 ticket price includes all materials, plus one drink per kid. Parents can attend for free, but need to buy their own refreshments.
The first event takes place Wednesday, October 21, from 4-5.3-pm at TRIBE Organic Restaurant and Café.
