Mother's Day Open House was a blast!

Thanks to many of you who joined us this past Saturday to celebrate MOM! It was especially great to see many new faces, sent here by YOU! along with Dad and the kids, out to make Mom something really special this year!

Gary and Marcia from WigJig™ joined us the the Jewelry Studio and taught a mini workshop in the “Queen of Clubs” earring design! It was fun to watch Gary and Marcia teach their wire wrapping techniques with their tool! Many folks who joined us for the WigJig™ project had little to no experience wire working but had the perfect teachers!

Upstairs in the Painting studio, papers were spread out all over the tables as folks completed their quest for the perfect paper to make Mom a card. Glitter, sequins and other assorted collage materials also were inspiring! One round of excitement even saw the glitter make it all over the floor! We really love watching kids get into card making!

Our next Open House is set for Saturday June 12th from 10am to 1pm! Bring that project in that is begging to be finished! Bring in your friends, family or co-workers and give them a tour of your favorite creative space!
