I have always wanted to do this as a complimentary event to the San Diego Chop Chops.... so here it goes.. Sorry.. I didnt realize another chop chop was happening the weekend before but oh well.. this is the date I can do it ...


I am opening the humble Monkeyman workshop to up to 15 participants who would like to make their own Tapa Fish Trap Lamp. Like this one



Set your Calendar for SATURDAY, MAY 26th- 2007
The cost is $80. (I found a lower cost Tapa seller)

OR.... its FREE if you bring your own materials and lunch and just want to hang out with everyone..


I will provide all the materials necessary (tapa, electrical, wood, etc) and you will assemble and layout/glue up the tapa panels...
Lunch and drinks will be included.
The event will run from 10am to .... whenever....


It will be made from actual Tapa cloth (not fabric) and if we can start early enough it should be fully dry and ready to take home before the day is up. All you will need to do when you get home is hang it and plug it in.

While the glue dries we can have a drink or two and hang out. Unlike Carving... there really arent any dangerous tools laying around.

PM or email me if you would like to attend.

The event will run from 10am to .... whenever....

WOW! What a great lamp!! I'd love to go but the trip across the Atlantic would be just a bit too much. Maybe you could do some plans and pics and we could put it in POCKETIKI #4 as a DIY article? I've had some good feedback with the vintage DIY articles we've had so far so these will be a regular feature. The lamp would be the coolest so far!! Think about it my friend? Mahalo and good luck with the event, I'd definitely be there if I possibly could!

It might be a really good weekend to come down. Hang with Derek all day, then head up to the Tonga Hut in the evening.

I fortunately don't have anything on the calendar for that weekend, so Coco Loco and I are free. So barring any unforseen circumstances, we're in!!! Gotta double check with my friend Terri to make sure we can crash at her pad in San Clemente. Looking forward to this! Thanks Derek, this is a way cool thing to offer to us.

Thank you to all who have PM'd me and Emailed me about this relaxed day of crafting and fun.

I know that its not very far in the future and that means I have a lot of prep do get done beforehand.

It will entail me purchasing enough supplies and tapa cloths for the number of participants. If the $90 cost is more than you care to part with but would still like to participate you can bring your own fabric and shave $45 off the cost.

Please RSVP no later than MONDAY MAY 21st.

To RSVP please paypal the $90 (or $45 if you have your own tapa or fabric) cost to

derek@monkeymandesign.com

If you are wanting to participate but unable to swing it Memorial Day weekend then I have another option for you.

I will prep 15 lamp kits regardless of how many attendees show up and will ship the kits to anypoint in the US to those of you who would like to try it at home.

I will provide instructions and make sure you have everything you need.

Keep that in mind if you are too far away or not available that weekend.

PM me if you are interested. The Kits will be $80+ shipping

A lamp like this in Oceanic Arts would retail for about $200+ fully assembled.
