The first Capitol Hill Art Walk of the year is upon us. This Thursday evening, make sure to pay a visit to Goethe Pop up Seattle to listen to German new wave and see record cover art at Chophouse Row, or shop artwork and hand-crafted wares by local queer artists and artisans at Scream for Queer Art! at Scream Salon. For more, check out our weekly round-up of things to do below and find even more events on the the CHS Calendar.

WEDNESDAY, Jan. 9: If badass wasn’t a word yet, we’d have to invent it for Haleema Bharoocha. The former Seattle student founded the Gender Justice Center at Seattle University, taught bystander intervention workshops called “Allyship in the Age of Islamophobia” and is currently the Bay Area director of Malikah, a female empowerment organization. Bharoocha returns to Seattle to teach a self-defense class, co-organized by the Gender Justice Center and International Student Association at Seattle University. The workshop covers basics such as blocks and strikes as well as (verbal) de-escalation tactics. Seattle University, 6 – 7.30 PM

THURSDAY, Jan. 10: “Formal Garden” is not a painting. It is a tattered, unevenly torn piece of a formerly-white towel, upon which Robert Yoder embroidered a few black, ochre and gray lines. And yet, it struck me as a more real and honest painting than many of the slick, conventional works also on view during the Seattle Art Fair this summer. Yoder, a local artist, gallery director and self-described introvert, uses embroidery, magazine clippings, paint, cloth and found objects to create graphic, near-abstract pieces that become, perhaps unwillingly, heraldic flags of his life. His new show,  MY MOUTH FULLY DRY, opens at Joe Bar tonight. Joe Bar Café, 6 – 9 PM.

SATURDAY, Jan. 12: Although confronted with both local and national controversy and criticism, Seattle’s Womxn’s March 3.0 will kick off at Cal Anderson next week as part of a three-day activism and action weekend. Get ready with a volunteer-run Screenprinting Work Party at Pratt Fine Arts Center, and help artist Claire Jauregui and Seattle Print Arts create and print posters around the theme “Building Power.” Pratt Fine Arts Center Print Studio

Screenprinting Work Party for the 2019 Womxn’s March

THROUGH SUNDAY, Jan. 13: Though “Sovereign” is subtitled a “Black Queer One Womyn Show”, it’s actually a week-long festival with line-ups of multiple Black Queer womyn. Headliners include “all-around Bad Ass Bitch”, burlesque performer Briq House a.k.a. Her Royal Thickness, local artist-actress Aishe’ Keita, winner of the Gregory Award for Best Actress in a play, healing sound artist and spoken word artist Naa Akua, the afro-latinx songstress/actress  Aviona Rodriguez Brown and local performer and dancer Tyisha Nedd. 18th & Union, 7.30 – 9 PM

SATURDAY, Jan. 16:  From ‘modern calligraphy’ workshops to Sauerkraut sessions and macramé-ing (which is “back”, by the way) Tillandsia plant holders, at creative workshop space The Works Seattle, exhausted hipster clichés are, it seems, not exhausted yet. Thrifters can escape the craftiness this Saturday during a Clothing Swap. Un-swapped clothing will be donated to the Jubilee Women’s Center, supporting women experiencing poverty and homelessness in the area. The event’s free, the organizers just ask to RSVP. The Works Seattle, 6 – 7.30 PM
