The Great Frame Up’s no-hassle guarantee and assurance that all work is done on-site means your frameables won't be subject to mistreatment at underground commercial framing facilities.
Color Me Mine art studio is stocked with more than 600 ceramic items awaiting decoration, including cookie jars, plates, and vases. Fledgling artists pick the item they want to paint and decorate it with nontoxic, lead-free, and food-safe paint. The studio instructors then glaze the completed masterpiece before firing it in a kiln, sealing the paint job and smoking out any genies hiding inside it. Color Me Mine also hosts BYOB painting classes in its private party room, where instructors give step-by-step instruction that help students create their own acrylic canvas paintings.
Between SJ Magazine's full-color covers lurk stories and articles on dining, homes, local celebrities, and everything Southern New Jersey. With a one-year subscription keeping your mailbox the talk of every other mailbox’s blog, you’ll get 12 issues packed with columns, commentary, and information on parenting and general health with a special focus on local medical professionals and their breakthroughs. A squad of longtime, loyal Southern New Jersey citizens staff the mag and live on its pages, covering local shops, neighborhoods, and choice eateries whenever they’re not busy producing annual features such as Best of SJ and Top Docs. Past issues have taken on topics ranging from the story of the town of Camden and the rise of Jon Runyan from footballer to congressman to profiles of people such as Wendy Williams and Philadelphia Phillies second baseman, Chase Utley.
Woolplay offers more than 100 kinds of yarn and easy-to-follow classes for fiber fanatics of all abilities. Classes last around 1.5 hours, and use time far more wisely than 90-minute horror-musicals about action figures. Take a three-class series, such as Learn to Knit, which instructs beginners on casting on, purling, and knitting. Learn to Knit in the Round, a two-class series, spotlights circular and double-pointed needles, which students employ on a hat-making journey. Single-session classes maintain a pointed focus, like a surgical laser or hoop-jumping dolphin. Easy Lace introduces students to a simple lace pattern, which could eventually find its home in a cozy scarf. Fixing Your Mistakes reveals how to correct for human error, a less burdensome task than repairing sloppy mittens knit by parakeets. Some classes require a $10 to $30 materials fee; check the schedule for more details.
Named the Best Yoga Studio of 2010 by Philadelphia magazine, Yogawood offers everyone the chance to strive for physical and mental harmony through yoga. A 10-class pass gets you access to any drop-in yoga session on the schedule at the Collingswood studio or the Riverton location. There are six different body-bending styles from which to sample. Ease yourself into relaxing poses with a Gentle Yoga or Vinyasa 101 class. Beginners might also enjoy the long-held postures of Yin yoga, which increase flexibility and mobility. Vinyasa Flow yoga harnesses the power of sun salutations to connect posture and breath in movements that will improve strength, balance, and coordination. A yoga/Pilates class will strengthen your core and allow you to stay toned and limber while temporarily storing worldly worries in a drawer with knick-knacks, spare change, and shrunken heads. Or you can cap off a muscle-tensing day of work fending off pigeon insults with an Ashtanga class.
