What You'll Get
Art can express a variety of human feelings, from joy at the birth of a child to confusion at the birth of a man-child. Eloquently articulate your emotions with today's Groupon: for $50, you get $100 toward one arts-and-craft class at Castle In The Air in Berkeley. Castle In The Air teaches imaginative artisans how to weave a magically woven tapestry of arts and crafts with whimsical European and fairytale motifs. Bind your own sky-sailing mythology in a wing book class ($95) or learn to construct a wee cupboard gnome in an acorn hat ($95) to use as bait for lawn-sharks. Prospective parents, meanwhile, can practice on a peapod baby ($100), which they'll make by transforming felt into a leaf-swaddled little one adorned with a curlicue tendril and a diaper full of frozen vegetable coupons. Castle in The Air can also teach you the art of making Mardi Gras masks, faux daguerrotypes, and folk-art valentines. Materials are included for all classes. Call ahead to reserve a class slot.
Yelpers give Castle in the Air a near perfect 4.5-star average:
- I took a Day of the Dead class where we made casket shaped altars. I loved it! The instructor was wonderful and my fellow classmates were energetic and fun to work with. – Lisa K.
- The instructors are an amazing and talented bunch, and their work is truly one-of-a-kind, not your typical craft fair type ware that you see everywhere. – Serena L.
