Community, collaboration, cooperation…all things we love to encourage here at the Art Loft. To this end, we’d love to have you join us for our monthly Art Parties! Each month we will focus on a different craft, skill, or theme.
December’s party will be an ‘Introduction to Jewelry Making.’ Everyone will learn how to make and go home with a pair of beaded earrings. Karen will bring her collection of freshwater pearls and metal beads to share with participants. All tools and supplies will be provided free of charge, we will even have some drinks and nibbles.
No experience is needed. Just come and have some fun. Space is limited, we encourage you to RSVP for this event. There is no charge, but donations of cash or snacks will be greatly appreciated.
