“I’ll craft with anything, but beer is such a great resource,” she says. “Aluminum is super-easy to use; I have a lot of it around, and it was not hard to come up with forty designs.” The crafts run the gamut from kitschy ’70s-style folk art to more modern stylings — and, Gascoyne-Bowman points out, making crafts and drinking beer go hand in hand.
“With a lot of crafting, you’ve got these enormous supplies that aren’t very portable,” she notes. “But I’ll just go out with some girlfriends to a brewery and try different beers we haven’t tried before.”
She’s especially excited to be stopping at the Tattered Cover, 2526 East Colfax Avenue, tonight at 7:30 p.m. to sign Beer Crafts: She grew up taking acting classes at the Bonfils Theatre and remembers when the book-signing area was the old improv club space.
