October 18, 2016 6:00 am

On Friday, October 21st, the Refuge Cafe hosts an evening of crafts—creating robots out of recycled materials like cans, wires, and tins, to be exact. The party is presented by Creatable, a local organization that hosts art parties and workshops throughout the month. This specific robot-creation party is open to crafters of all skill levels, and no experience is necessary. Instructors will be on hand to help class attendees along throughout the building process. Class attendees will be encouraged to give their robot a name and a backstory too!

The class runs from 7 to 10 p.m. on October 21st. Admission is $25 per person, which includes all the tools you will need to make your robot as well as one drink and appetizers. Tickets should be purchased online to ensure your spot at the class. The build-a-bot art party is taking place only a mile from Citi on Camelback, which makes the event a great Friday night activity for residents.
