Our next teasecraft-boston meetup on Friday, March 21, from
7:30-9:30pm at Artisan's Asylum (Multipurpose Room) will feature
"Sugar & Spice, Naughty & Nice: Burlesque-Inspired DIY" with Clarissa
Although rarely considered valid forms of technology - women's
contributions to fashion, jewelry, cosmetics, textiles, and the
decorative arts serve as remarkable instances of innovation, technical
prowess and skill - revealing the forgotten power of all seemingly
trivial "decorative" techniques and practices. Clarissa Cupcake will
demonstrate the erotic potential of several surprising, unexpected
genres - including scrapbooking, embroidery, beading and collage - and
discuss the value of using feminine kitsch as a tool for psychological
domination, power play, and humiliation.
About the presenter:
Clarissa Cupcake is a cultural psychoanalyst, fashion/jewelry
designer, inventor, and burlesque performance artist. She is the owner
and founder of Lace Exoskeleton (lace-exoskeleton.com
), and was
recently awarded a provisional patent for her "Chain Reactions"
modular jewelry and fashion design concept. Through transforming
everyday consumer choices into spiritually meaningful, artistic, and
emotionally engaging collective experiences, she hopes to refocus
consumer desire to favor sustainable, ethical, and artisan-made
products and services. You can visit Clarissa Cupcake and her partner
