$20 for One Craft Class ($40 Value)
Crafty teachers lead a wide variety of hands-on classes such as a jewelry box and necklace class that teaches artists to decorate a personal bauble chest and make a glass-tile pendant necklace. Glassware gets a makeover in the etched wine glasses and beer steins class, and fabric arts include beginning knitting and embroidery. All materials are provided, along with bonus materials with which to make extra crafts during class.
Named among the top five local craft stores by Fox 8 City Voter, the shop serves as a workshop for burgeoning crafters, as well as a gift shop and a source for inspiring seasonal project ideas. Staff artists teach workshops in three crafting genres: jewelry, housewares, and needle arts, offering a well-rounded curriculum that helps students with all-around constructive knowledge. Just as fish parents drop their babies into the water to teach them how to swim, teachers instill the fundamentals of handicraft by walking students through their first project during classes. Inside the eclectic gift shop, more than 65 local artists display handmade loot such as purses, hair accessories, pottery, and greeting cards, each unique in design. The community-minded store also encourages crafters of all skill levels to gather under its roof, whether to trade inspiration, project ideas, or swap unneeded craft supplies.
